Description

After the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Americans donated nearly half a billion dollars to the Red Cross, far more than any other charity received. We asked Red Cross leaders where the money went. They wouldn't tell us. So we went to Haiti to find out. What ProPublica's Justin Elliott and NPR's Laura Sullivan discovered was squandered donations, unfounded claims of success, and a trail of resentment. The Red Cross claimed it provided homes to more than 130,000 Haitians. The reality: The charity built just six permanent homes in all of Haiti.
