Description
Ten years after the deadliest disaster of our lifetime, what lessons has the world learned—and which has it chosen not to? This January marks the 10-year anniversary of the deadliest natural disaster in modern history. To help Haiti rebuild, the US pledged $4.4 billion dollars in aid. An investigation by Kushner reveals that one of America’s largest aid projects in Haiti has been quietly abandoned, millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars spent.
