“On the 12th January 2010, an earthquake of 7.0Mw devastated the island of Haiti. An estimated 52 aftershocks tore apart some 250,000 residences and 30,000 commercial buildings, and a total of 316,000 civilians died, with around 3 million affected. Two years on, the reverberations of the Haitian earthquake continue to be felt, with some 500,000 Haitians still homeless. Thousands of NGO’s are present, and yet, Haiti continues to suffer from good intentions and broken pledges.
This March, join Dialogue Books as we host a special conversation between Sarah LeVine and Rose-Anne Clermont. Ahead of her upcoming publication, Sarah LeVine will present her study of the Haitian NGO’s that actually succeed in making a difference.”
