Miami Herald cites Datamyne stats on charitable goods that got only so far

“At Haitian port, desperately needed aid sits and sits and sits …” headlines a Miami Herald investigation into why so much aid has reached so few in a country as beleaguered by bureaucratic inefficiency and official corruption as by earthquake and hurricane.

According to a trade analysis done for the Herald by Datamyne, a third of the $504 million in goods exported to Haiti from the Miami customs district in the first 10 months of 2010 were charitable goods. But much of the cargo has been gotten no further than port, while NGOs try to overcome the ineptitude (or corruption?) of customs officials and the Haitian government complains about the arrogance (or larceny?) of relief agencies. 

Read the full story in the Miami Herald here.
