Three years after one of the most disastrous earthquakes in history, Haitians are continuing to rebuild their lives. More than 200,000 people lost their lives and 1.5 million were displaced. The capital suffered catastrophic damage, crippling government buildings and destroying millions of homes.

The residents of Port-au-Prince are recycling debris left from the earthquake to rehabilitate their neighborhood by producing building materials created from the rubble. UNDP supported projects to reconstruct and improve roads, alleyways, drainage systems, public spaces and build disaster-resistant homes, using recycled material.

Projects such as these help to enable Haiti to transition from crisis and recovery to national development.

Haiti: Where Did the Money Go? Episode Haiti: Disaster To Development 1 day ago   10:16

In January 2010, a 7.0 earthquake devastated Haiti. The international community, including one out of two Americans, pledged billions of dollars in aid, yet the nation has seen little improvement. Three hundred thousand died, nearly two million live in ramshackle tent cities. Cholera has swept through the population, killing thousands and hospitalizing many others. Only about 2% of the rubble has been cleared.

Is this what you expected when you pledged your aid dollars? Independent journalists Film@11.tv journeyed to Haiti in November 2010 to see the situation for themselves, and dig into the burning question: what happened to all that money?
