How the Red Cross Raised Half a Billion Dollars for Haiti ­and Built Six Homes

Picturesque Squalor. Most Charities are just Money Laundering Scams for Criminals. Don't give them anything.
The neighbourhood of Campeche sprawls up a steep hillside in Haiti’s capital city, Port-au-Prince. Goats rustle in trash that goes forever uncollected. Children kick a deflated volleyball in a dusty lot below a wall with a hand-painted logo of the American Red Cross.
In late 2011, the Red Cross launched a multimillion-dollar project to transform the desperately poor area, which was hit hard by the earthquake that struck Haiti the year before. The main focus of the project — called LAMIKA, an acronym in Creole for “A Better Life in My Neighbourhood” — was building hundreds of permanent homes.
Today, not one home has been built in Campeche.
