Dr Angela Sherwood, Post-Doctoral Fellow at Queen Mary University of London, has written an opinion piece about the repeat of aid failures in Haiti following the 2021 earthquake. She writes: "It is now well known that the billions of dollars pledged to Haiti after its devastating earthquake were wasted by a self-serving humanitarian intervention. Most of the $6.4bn for reconstruction landed in the pockets of foreign contractors, UN agencies, the US military and international NGOs. Meanwhile, Haitians saw very little of the money."
