Haiti: One Year Later

Today is one year since the tremendous earthquake. Since then, Americans have donated $1.4 billion (with a “b”) to help with their rebuilding. As I watch the coverage on television, I am left feeling both sad and frustrated.

Just about the entire world came to Haiti to help. However, as the infrastructure crumbled around them, their government crumbled as well. What was once a corrupt government is now in complete disarray. So, I ask, just like many others, where did the money go?

Are there some small improvements? Absolutely. Is it anywhere near enough? Not even close.

Sadly, I wonder if that small nation will ever rise up again, regardless of any amount of money that is sent for aid for their people.

As I have done since a year ago today, I continue to pray for the people of Haiti.
