Haitians are urging people not to give money to ARC

"Yet accompanying many requests for aid comes a warning – do not give your money to the American Red Cross (ARC). Trust in the ARC, and in foreign aid more widely, has been badly shaken by a 2015 report that found donations had been squandered. Despite collecting nearly half a billion dollars to provide relief after the 2010 Haiti earthquake and pledging to build 700 permanent homes, the ARC has been accused of only building six."
