Haiti: Cholera Compensation or Opportunism?

Stanley Lucas has a few questions about a court case that is seeking to compensate Haitian cholera victims, saying: “At worst, it seems an opportunistic attempt to capitalize on a tragic situation for fund raising purposes. What is equally concerning is [the] approach to this challenge. Rather than offer the Haitian Government the technical and legal support to file and organize this case, [they] circumvented the government and pursued this project on [their] own. This has been exactly the approach that has resulted in the failure of foreign aid in Haiti.”

    I love Kim Kaardashian and I think that she did a good thing by goin to Haiti , people are always whinning every time a celebrity does something good at least she went ,
    As far as the Fashion Show she attended in Haiti , I am pretty sure it is the people who decided to throw on e for her , look the people were Happy to have her there and there was happy moments by both sides .Case Closed.
