    Clinton Foundation asks Haiti Hurricane donations, Twitter loses it
    October 7, 2016

    NEW YORK CITY, New York, US (sentinel.ht) – Bill Clinton and his family’s foundation couldn’t so much as mention Hurricane Matthew’s path of destruction through Haiti without receiving backlash from Twitter users who balked at the possibility of giving the Clintons money after billions were squandered after the 2010 earthquake.

    The Shelters That Clinton Built

    Structurally unsafe and laced with formaldehyde, the "hurricane-proof" classroom trailers installed by the Clinton Foundation in Haiti came from the same company being sued for sickening Hurricane Katrina victims.
    July 11, 2011

    When Demosthene Lubert heard that Bill Clinton’s foundation was going to rebuild his collapsed school at the epicenter of Haiti’s January 12, 2010, earthquake, in the coastal city of Léogâne, the academic director thought he was "in paradise."

    The project was announced by Clinton as his foundation’s first contribution to the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission, which the former president co-chairs. The foundation described the project as "hurricane-proof…emergency shelters that can also serve as schools…to ensure the safety of vulnerable populations in high risk areas during the hurricane season," while also providing Haitian schoolchildren "a decent place to learn" and creating local jobs. The facilities, according to the foundation, would be equipped with power generators, restrooms, water and sanitary storage. They became one of the IHRC’s first projects.

    However, when Nation reporters visited the "hurricane-proof" shelters in June, six to eight months after they’d been installed, we found them to consist of twenty imported prefab trailers beset by a host of problems, from mold to sweltering heat to shoddy construction. Most disturbing, they were manufactured by the same company, Clayton Homes, that is being sued in the United States for providing the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) with formaldehyde-laced trailers in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.​

    Clinton Foundation critics revive scrutiny of Haiti failures in hurricane aftermath
    October 7, 2016

    As Haiti takes stock of the damage wrought by Hurricane Matthew this week, critics have renewed their scrutiny of relief efforts — many of them sponsored by the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton's State Department — that failed to alleviate the country's suffering after a massive earthquake there in 2010.

    A small group of Haitian-Americans gathered outside the New York City offices of state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman Thursday to protest his refusal to look into the Clinton Foundation's finances. The same group, known as the Committee to Mobilize Against Dictatorship in Haiti, has held several demonstrations throughout the campaign in an attempt to highlight the foundation's failures.​

    Office Space

    As cdm reminded me today, as there is a review going on about the nature of business that can take place on CF property, the outcome will presumably affect the nature of the office hrc will be able to have at CF. Since in the near term, we are talking about a small staff that could be handling potentially more than just charitable activity, we may have to be elsewhere.
