One of Share Our Strength's major grant recipients since the earthquake in Haiti has been Partners In Health. Yesterday, on the 6 month anniversary of the earthquake they released a report detailing their impact so far, as well as the $26.6 million in expenditures made in 2010 and projected spending through FY 2012. A summary can be found at http://www.standwithhaiti.org/page/content/overview. Partners in Health has always set the standard when it comes to health care in Haiti and the other developing countries where they work. Now it is setting an impressive standard for financial transparency as well.
As you’ve seen from news accounts, conditions in Haiti remain desperate. The media has temporarily brought Haiti back onto the front page and into national awareness. Unfortunately it now only does so to mark major anniversaries of the earthquake, though the suffering of course is year round.
