This week it’s six months since the earthquake of 12th January 2010, when 300,000 people died and one and a half million people were made homeless.
Here’s one radio and one video piece recommended by readers of this blog, Ali and Aaron, that ask relevant questions like…
- Why with thousands of foreign NGOs in the country was Haiti a continuously failing state even before the earthquake?
- Six months after the earthquake, why has only 10% of the money promised by international donor governments reached Haiti?
