Haiti 3 Months Later, The Red Cross Reportage

What happened to all the money donated to the Red Cross for Haiti? Earlier today I asked the question "is Haiti better or worse since the earthquake of January 12," I just received a report from the Red Cross via email, as if it was a response to my article, and I wanted to share it with you.

Here is the article, Read it and post your comments:


Three months after the earthquake in Haiti, you can see the progress that's been made just by looking into people's faces.

As I was walking with American Red Cross President and CEO Gail McGovern on a recent trip to Haiti she said, "Three months ago, fear, pain and shock were the only expressions to be found. Today, you'll see people walking down the streets in Port-au-Prince with a sense of purpose, offering an occasional smile. The roads are cleared; vendors line the sidewalks; and children are even found flying kites."

Heartbreak has turned to hope--but there is still a long way to go, especially with the rainy season underway and hurricane season coming.

Watch a short video briefing on how your support is helping Haiti recover and rebuild following January's devastating earthquake. Then read our three-month status report:

So far, the American Red Cross has spent $110 million in Haiti for necessities such as shelter, food, clean water, and other critical supplies for hundreds of thousands of Haitians.

I can't state strongly or often enough that none of our work is possible without you. Going forward, that's no less true as we continue to help the people of Haiti and respond to other emergencies down the street, across the country and around the word.

Thank you again for all you've done, and all you'll do.

But first...

I am also inviting you to review another video about the American Red Cross Haiti Recovery Plan.

Apparently, The Red Cross has a recovery plan for Haiti that will provide "Permanent, safe secure homes" for the people of Haiti.

Watch this video for details.

Another interesting video is the interview of Dr. Michaele Gideon, president of the Haitian Red Cross, as she discusses the work in progress in Haiti how the dollars donated to the Red Cross for Haiti are being spent.
