  • Haiti is somewhat like parts of East Africa. What the aid groups are doing is right by working on the ground to help locals. If you give money, the government takes it. The Japanese gave money to Tanzania and the govt kept taking it. Finally, the Japanese brought all their own equipment and paved roads throughout the country by themselves to get it done.
