Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive wants to keep track of aid money flowing into his country as he noted that the government - mired in corruption issues before the Jan. 12 quake - knew little about which organizations received certain amounts of money, Reuters reports.
“We don’t know who has given money to NGO’s (nongovernmental organizations) and how much money have they given. … At the moment, we can’t do any coordination or have any coherent policies for giving to the population,” Bellerive told reporters in Port-au-Prince.
The United Nations is coordinating humanitarian efforts in Haiti, where more than a million people are in need of shelter and food aid. Rebuilding Haiti’s worst-affected region, the nation’s capital, is estimated to exceed USD10 billion.
