According to a report released by Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, American Red Cross pocketed close to $125 million of Haiti earthquake fund.
Based on a yearlong investigation by the Iowa Republican and his staff, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley has reported that the esteemed charity organization Red Cross received an outpouring of donations after the 2010 quake, nearly $500 million, more than any other nonprofit organization received. But sadly, its all ambitious plans to build housing for the earthquake victims completely failed on the ground in Haiti. The Red Cross says it has provided homes to more than 130,000 earthquake victims. But the actual number of permanent homes the group has built in all of Haiti is just six. As per the charity organization's report, they spent $70 million on "program expenses" which include funds spent to oversee and evaluate its Haiti programs. In its earlier reports, Red Cross's had repeatedly told that, of the total funds it receives on humanitarian programs, it spends up to 9% (in recent case, it should be $45 million) on internal expenses. However, Grassley's office found that 25% of the total donations ($500 million) sent to Haiti or about $125 million were spent as fundraising and management expenses.
Six years after the earthquake, a majority of Haiti is still in disrepair. In last March, some Haitians protested outside of the Clinton Foundation in New York. As per their claim 'Clinton Foundation' has stolen ¡°billions of dollars¡± which was meant to help rebuild Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake. In an earlier protest in January, they had alleged that the Foundation wasted money more than $10 billion and awarded contracts to non-Haitian companies where Haiti was used as a cover to receive kickbacks. The activists claimed that Bill Clinton stole that amount of money through the 'Haiti Reconstruction Commission' which was headed by none other than himself and the evidence of these crimes, over 32,000 emails, were deleted by Hillary Clinton from her email account which was connected to a privately-owned server, instead of government email accounts maintained on secured federal servers. A book published in March 2015, was titled as "Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.¡± The book investigates the connections between the Clintons' wealth, the Clinton Foundation, and decisions Hillary Clinton made as the Secretary of State.
