The Smart Way to Help Nepal

The Smart Way to Help Nepal: "We can only hope that larger disaster-relief organizations learned lessons to avoid some of the well-intentioned fumbles made in Haiti, like failing to work closely enough with local people and organizations. In Haiti, there was such an overwhelming influx of foreign aid workers and funds that Kathie Klarreich and Linda Polman of The Nation called it "The NGO Republic of Haiti" (NGO stands for non-governmental organization). You may remember the controversy over the Red Cross' and other aid organizations' slow recovery efforts after they had gathered well over $1 billion."
