Haiti and Aid Effectiveness

Thursday, March 31, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Main Function Room, Suffolk University Law School

Ronald Bernard, Haitian aid recipient and graduate student at The Heller School for Social and Policy Management at Brandeis University, and Gregory Adams, Aid Effectiveness Director at Oxfam America, join moderator William Dorcena, Ford Hall Forum board member and co-founder of The Boston Haitian Reporter, to give voice to the troubled recovery after Haiti’s devastating earthquake. Bernard reviews demonstrated drawbacks in U.S. aid delivery to Haiti while Adams presents how the experience in Haiti has revolutionized international relief organizations. From the spread of cholera to difficulties in texting donations, the glacial pace of observable healing in Haiti prompts the question of whether our nation sincerely intends to help.
