Witness to Brocken Promises in Haiti ....With no sewage system and no source of clean water, it is all too predictable that camp residents are being stricken with some of the hundreds of thousands of cholera cases reported in Haiti since the earthquake. The residents show us multiple shelter sites marked for demolition in keeping with the local Mayor’s pledge to remove them from the site. “This is not much, but where are we to go if we are forced out?,” says one father, standing outside his tent with his family. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. President Barack Obama told the Haitian people after the January 2010 earthquake, "You will not be forsaken, you will not be forgotten.” The U.S. pledged hundreds of millions in aid, and the UN, the European Union, and seemingly the entire international community followed suit. Almost 18 months later, only a fraction of the promised money has arrived here. Since those post-earthquake pledges were delivered, four of five Haitians are now unemployed, the countryside is deforested and eroded, and the dominant international presence here is not home-builders but gun-wielding United Nations troops. Since those post-earthquake pledges were delivered, the country’s brutal former dictator Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier, has returned to Haiti, where he cavorts in high-end restaurants and clubs, seemingly immune from prosecution for his U.S.-supported reign of unlawful imprisonments, murders, and stripping clean of the country’s treasury. Since those post-earthquake pledges were delivered, Haiti’s majority party was barred from the recent presidential election, again with U.S. blessing, disenfranchising most Haitians, especially the poor. .......... http://www.commondreams.org/view/2011/07/03

Clinton Foundation Accused of Sending Haiti Shoddy Trailers Found Toxic After Katrina

Share6​


A new exposé in The Nation magazine reveals that trailers the Clinton Foundation donated to post- earthquake Haiti to use as temporary classrooms — and to double as hurricane shelters — are plagued by mold, shoddy construction. In at least one case, an air quality test revealed worrying levels of formeldahyde. The trailers were built by the same company that is being sued in the United States for providing formeldahyde-laced trailers to displaced residents after Hurricane Katrina. We speak with the journalists who broke this story, Isabel Macdonald and Isabeau Doucet. “What does it say about the reconstruction efforts in Haiti if the very first project approved by the commission that is supposed to ensure accountability and transparency in Haiti’s rebuilding passes this kind of project and Bill Clinton himself has his hands all over it?,” says Macdonald. “He is the co-chair of this commission that is supposed to ensure Haiti is built back better.”

Brother Ankhur ... with the USA currently struggling to care for its self, breaking promises to its own citizens, what do you expect it to do for others?
