Transparency - New Website To Track Haiti Aid Use

In case you were worried about transparency when it comes to all the billions of dollars being pledge for Haiti for reconstruciton, worry no more.... The United Nations has launched a new web site "to ensure the efficient use of the money" they say.

The US Dollar, Some Haitians Call it 'Caesar'

According to an article published in the associated press, this new "Haiti reconstruction dollar monitoring website" has two purposes:

Purpose #1

The first purpose of this new site is to help hold the donors keep their promises.

In other words, every time somebody makes a promise to Haiti, their name and the dollar amount they pledge will be posted on this new site for the world to see.

How's that for transparency?

But wait there's more...

Purpose #2

The second purpose of the web site is to ensure transparency and accountability for the use of the money.

Ah Ha...

Ke-l depanse an Goud, Ke-l Depanse an Dola Amerikin, nou gen pou nou we-l...

I guess it is safe to assume that every penny that is spent on the money for the reconstruction of Haiti will be listed in a very easy to read page on that website so that we know exactly how much each hammer, each nail, and each "Fey Tol" costs in the reconstruction.

I can't wait to see it in action.
