HAITI: WHERE DID THE MONEY GO?

THU, NOV 22 / 7 pm
DIR. MICHELE MITCHELL
2012 | US | 53 MIN

Panel Discussion to follow with representatives from the Winnipeg Haiti Solidarity Group

In the United States alone, half of all households gave a total of $1.4 billion to charities, yet almost two years later more than half a million people in Haiti still live in squalid camps. Only a few have access to drinking water. Sanitation  is woefully inadequate. Malnutrition and cholera are on the rise. What happened? Haiti: Where Did The Money Go? asks the pivotal question: why did so much money buy so little relief? And why are so many still living in squalor? Cameras take viewers to crowded camps where thousands of families live under tattered tarps beside overflowing latrines, and then into the board rooms of relief organizations, where journalist Michele Mitchell asks the American Red Cross and others about why conditions in Haiti continue to deteriorate when people have donated billions of dollars for aid.

“On Monday night I went to Goldcrest to finally view a screening of Haiti: Where Did the Money Go? What I saw filled me with anger, sympathy, and many, many questions.” – THE OBSERVER

Haiti: Where Did the Money Go? is Co-Presented with the Winnipeg Haiti Solidarity Group
