Four years ago, the Red Cross launched a project to help rebuild and transform a poverty stricken area in Haiti which was destroyed by the massive earthquake that happened there in 2010. As a result, they received a tremendous amount of support and money from people all over the world, totaling a staggering five hundred million dollars.
The main focus of the project was to build homes for the population in Campeche, where many people live without access to drinkable water, electricity, or basic sanitation. They live in shacks that are made out of rusty sheet metal. It’s so bad that when it rains their homes flood with mud and water.
Although the Red Cross has been very vocal regarding the work that they do, and told the world that they have provided homes to more than 130,000 people there, the actual number of homes built numbers at 6. This would mean that these 6 homes would all be worth approximately 80 million dollars.
