Report on

The Transparency of Relief Organizations Responding to the 2010 Haiti Earthquake

Citizen Oversight Requires Citizen Engagement

About Disaster Accountability Project (DAP)
The Disaster Accountability Project (DAP) is a non-profit, nonpartisan organization committed to:
• • •

improving disaster management systems through policy research and advocacy; promoting transparency and engaging citizens to become more involved in preparedness and relief; and helping to ensure that people know what is happening on the ground during a disaster.

What We Do
Founded in 2007 in reaction to the bungled response to Hurricane Katrina, DAP has demonstrated that dedicated and informed oversight can help ensure that government agencies and nonprofit organizations live up to their life-saving obligations before, during, and after crises.

Our History
Over the past few years, members of Congress, the news media, and emergency management practitioners have requested and utilized the research and real-time information collected by DAP. For a young organization, DAP has had an out-sized and far-reaching impact (as reported by ABC News, the Associated Press, the New Orleans Times-Picayune, and the Chronicle of Philanthropy, among others). Some of these accomplishments include:

Investigating and authoring a report on how accessible and up-to-date the emergency plans in twenty-two hurricane-vulnerable Louisiana parishes were; this report prompted many parishes to update and improve the public accessibility of their plans. Conducting a successful campaign to compel FEMA to comply with federal law and elevate the position of FEMA Disability Coordinator, so that she has more authority and resources available to fulfill the position's mandate. Using the Disaster Accountability Hotline as a real-time listening device during Hurricane Ike and assisting numerous callers and countless others by directing details of gaps in critical services to responsible government agencies and nonprofit organizations. Launching ReliefOversight.org: a website designed to improve transparency in aid activities, to help ensure donations reach groups with the greatest capacity to deliver needed services and facilitate coordination between organizations on the ground.

Executive Summary
Purpose
This report seeks to: (1) determine whether 197 nonprofit organizations that solicited donations for Haiti disaster relief produced situation reports on their activities; and, if so (2) how comprehensive and publicly accessible such situation reports were. Through this report, DAP aims to promote accountability and transparency by 1) highlighting relief organizations that provide the public complete and detailed situation reports and 2) identifying those relief organizations that either do not release situation reports to the public or have published situation reports that include very few concrete facts.

Scope
The ReliefOversight team’s scope narrowed as the production of this report progressed. After the high-magnitude earthquake in Haiti on January 12, 2010, a team of researchers – based primarily in the US – compiled a list of nearly 200 organizations soliciting donations for Haiti relief. DAP conducted further research to find information on how groups operate in Haiti. The purpose of this research was to find and assess the availability and comprehensiveness of organizations’ regular situation reports, which ideally should contain detailed documentation of Haiti relief work. The ReliefOversight team logged and evaluated each situation report it found based upon its quality and availability. Quality assessments relate directly to the ultimate goal of bolstering standards of transparency. Availability of information, such as the policies and day-to-day activities of relief work, signifies the openness of relief organizations. Recognizing deficiencies in reporting, such as infrequent updating, limited information, or long gaps between entries, allows for the creation of corrective, binding policy recommendations that ensure that all relief groups increase transparency. As shown in the collected data, of the near 200 organizations identified as active in Haiti after the earthquake, only approximately ten percent responded to our survey, and of those, a number provided incomplete answers. However, descriptive and comparative observations concerning the behavior of these groups can be still be made by examining the information provided by the 21 aid groups that did respond to the survey.

The groups that were fully responsive were: 1. Oxfam; 2. International Aid, Inc.; 3. American Refugee Committee; 4. Catholic Medical Mission Board; 5. Relief International-Haiti; 6. America’s Relief & Development Team; 7. Physicians for Peace; 9. Episcopal Relief & Development; 9. Appropriate Infrastructure Development Group; 10. Children’s Lifeline; 11. Church of the Brethren Ministries; 12. LifeWind International; 13. Engineering Ministries International; 14. Plant with Purpose; 15. Compassion & Mercy Associates; 16. International Crisis Aid; 17. Help the Children; 18. Compassion International; 19. American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee; 20. World Cares Center; 21. Agape Flights Although the scope of this report is limited to those groups responding to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the need for increased transparency in other relief settings is clear. While the specific circumstances of each aid operation may vary, all relief organizations should be held accountable for not only the consequences of their actions, but also for maintaining a high level of transparency, and should therefore adopt policies that allow the international community to monitor their activities. While it may be argued that such public scrutiny could deter some organizations from responding as quickly to a disaster by limiting their flexibility, this is a false dilemma. The responses to this survey suggest that relief organizations with a genuine interest in promoting sustainable development and providing essential needs have nothing to fear from increased transparency. It is our hope that the methodology used to study relief groups in Haiti can be applied to aid work worldwide. The scope of such work is only limited by aid organizations themselves, insofar as they control the information relevant for transparency studies. We of course recognize and would exclude from such a study those settings where aid workers need to maintain anonymity and work in secret for fear of reprisals; such environments would be more suitably studied in a different fashion. Furthermore, aid organizations with very low budgets may not have the capacity to provide as frequent updates as organizations with annual budgets above one million dollars.

Process
The ReliefOversight team of Disaster Accountability Project (DAP) is a group dedicated to increasing transparency in the policies and practices of aid organizations. The team sought to obtain information from relief groups responding to the high-magnitude earthquake that shook Haiti on January 12, 2010. The first step was to reach out to these groups and attempt to establish communication concerning their relief practices. We then identified the relief group’s coordinator or representative of affairs in Haiti, and sent that representative a standard survey. Correspondence with relief organizations occurred via e-mail, the templates for which can be found under Correspondence Log. Many organizations also posted contact information for particular coordinators and representatives on their websites under contact directories. Despite numerous efforts to contact some groups, a number remained unresponsive.

5

Another difficulty encountered in soliciting responses from relief groups was the way in which organizations limit initial contact. Many relief groups have an online form to complete with a pre-determined set of inquiry topics. Any additional information would have to be obtained by signing up for a newsletter or mailing list. While directly contacting an actual representative did not itself guarantee a response, contact via online inquiry forms further decreased the possibility of correspondence with an organization. Filling out these forms often triggered an automated response e-mail offering thanks for interest in the organization’s work and vague promises that a representative would answer the inquiry soon. While some groups did actually follow through and provide a contact, submitting online request forms mostly failed to return the desired information. The second round of correspondence with organizations was limited primarily to those groups that provided contact information. This second round involved sending the actual survey, reproduced in this report, to relief organizations. ReliefOversight typically asked that the surveys be completed within a week of receipt. Analysis of these surveys allowed the ReliefOversight team to examine the extent to which relief organizations value transparency in their efforts in Haiti. The surveys also provided a picture of the scope of relief provided by each organization. Although organizations such as GuideStar and Charity Navigator offer much information regarding relief groups, making public details of the actual day-to-day activities of relief groups in Haiti is crucial to achieving greater transparency in aid. In addition to analyzing the information contained within the survey responses, the ReliefOversight team also created organization profiles on the ReliefOversight.org website to publicize much of the information contained in the surveys. This in turn enables the public to better understand the scope and purpose of a particular aid group’s work and capacity to deliver aid. This information helps potential donors make more informed decisions regarding how best to direct resources to have the greatest impact. This information can also help improve coordination between groups delivering aid on the ground. These organization profiles can be found at www.reliefoversight.org.

Highlights
Overall Observations

Response Volume
The survey was sent out to 197 relief organizations working in Haiti. Of those organizations, 82 either gave contact information for a Haiti relief representative upon request, or displayed the information on the their websites. Of the groups for whom we were able to obtain contact information, 145 were sent surveys, and 21 organizations completed said survey. However, of the organizations that filled out the survey, some did not fill out a response for every question.

1
Baptist

Mid-Missions inquired about ReliefOversight’s post verification methods, spamming, and our parent organization, DAP.
 2
Child Family Heath International indicated that they felt that the organization was unfit to complete the survey because the group does not conduct disaster relief operations in Haiti.
 3
Global Fund For Children indicated that they felt that the organization was unfit to complete the survey because the group was not soliciting donations for disaster relief.
 4
Global Giving indicated that they felt that the organization was unfit to complete the survey because the group worked with other organizations to fundraise for their efforts.
 5
American Red Cross representative provided minimal transparency information throughout the correspondence. The correspondence between ReliefOversight and American Red Cross is displayed in the index.
 6
Jesuit Refugee Service USA is currently reporting to InterAction.
 7
Mercy Corps is currently reporting to InterAction and Transparency International, but did provide ReliefOversight with a 90-day fact sheet. The correspondence between ReliefOversight and Mercy Corps as well as the 90-day fact sheet submitted by Mercy Corps are displayed in the index.
 8
AIDG submitted a survey after sending a correspondence indicating concerns about not having time to complete it. Also, in the correspondence the representative provided some information on what the group was currently working on by providing a newsletter indicating work concerning the disaster in Guatemala. They also included a brief run down of a financial and work related report. This correspondence is displayed in the index.
 9
Plan International requested extra time to complete the survey, but did not submit a survey in the end.
 10
Oxfam requested extra time to complete the survey and completed one a few days later, in time to be included in this report.

Transparency
The Disaster Accountability Project’s ReliefOversight.org aims to increase the transparency of relief organizations. In this study, the evaluation process initially focused on locating the website of each organization, and then searching those sites for updated situation reports. For this purpose, a situation report is defined as a document created and maintained by an organization that details its daily or weekly activities in the disaster zone. It includes specific and detailed information regarding the organization’s sector of focus (e.g. health, shelter, food, etc.), active projects and the status thereof, the number of people served, in which specific locations and on which exact dates, as well as the status of fund dispersal. The aggregation of survey responses support the conclusion that that the majority of relief organizations lack transparency. As such, it is difficult to truly comprehend the scope and efficiency of relief efforts in Haiti. This raises serious concerns about efficiency and effectiveness given the hundreds of millions of dollars donated to relief organizations since the earthquake . Situation Report Availability Very few organizations offer detailed and easily accessible situation reports. While many organizations post newsletters or short updates on their websites, these are neither extensive nor telling of what has actually been accomplished. Blogs are also popular, and although some do contain useful details about activities, most are anecdotal or emotional appeals instead of factual descriptions. The information DAP compiled on situation report availability is presented below. Situation Report Key Red: indicates that the respective organization does not have a situation report available on its website, although other, non-factual updates may be available. Yellow: indicates that a partial situation report is available on the organization’s website. Groups with regular, factual updates, or more extensive blogs containing facts, were also grouped in this category. Green: indicates that full situation reports are available.

General Trends Observed
The survey responses reveal that some smaller organizations demonstrate great diligence in reporting and greater transparency than their larger, more established counterparts. Very few groups provided extensive information regarding the long-term goals of their relief services. For example, many aid groups providing housing in Haiti fail to address how long they intend to accommodate people left without homes. Likewise, many fail to discuss their ability to sustainably deliver essential needs to the children, women, and men currently residing in aid groups’ homes or camps. The lack of documentation about relief housing does not necessarily imply derisory conditions, but it does invoke concerns regarding the environment in which earthquake victims currently live and their future housing options. Ultimately, examining the survey responses offered by the twenty-one aid groups reveals that very few organizations are willing to divulge much more than their general aid practices and financial information. This reinforces the notion that greater transparency is necessary in the current structure of disaster relief and aid work. Too many groups soliciting funds fail to provide full reports on how they utilize time and resources to achieve the stated goals of their organization. Considering these likenesses and contrasts between aid groups’ reporting practices, organizations should take significant steps towards greater openness and access to information. Such transparency can bolster trust and connections between aid groups and the public, thereby increasing both public willingness to contribute and the efficiency of delivering aid to those in need.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) In response to correspondence with relief organizations as well as the surveys received, the following list of FAQs was compiled: Q) A) What does ReliefOversight do? ReliefOversight.org is a publicly generated, data-driven initiative of the Disaster Accountability Project to improve transparency in disaster relief operations. The website serves as clearinghouse of fact-based situation and activity reports to document the day-to-day on-the-ground activities of relief and aid organizations soliciting donations from the public. It is critical that the public has access to the most objective and reliable information on the capacity, activities, goals, difficulties, background, size, partnerships with other relief groups, status/presence on the ground, budget size, and prior experience. What does the Disaster Accountability Project do? The Disaster Accountability Project focuses on improving disaster management systems through public accountability and transparency, citizen oversight and engagement, and policy research and advocacy. I received a survey from ReliefOversight.org but it’s past the due date, should I still fill out the survey? Yes, we would still appreciate your responses. What is transparent earmarking? A transparent earmarked finance is one in which the funds are visibly held for a specific purpose. What does “home staff” and “indigenous staff” mean on the survey? Home staff defines staff members who work in an organization’s central or main headquarters. Indigenous staff defines staff members of the organization who come from the country or area in which the disaster occurred. What does “partner organization” mean on the survey? A partner organization consists of any group giving funds to or receiving funds from your organization, or any group with which your organization works in collaboration in order to provide disaster relief, response, recovery or other aid services. Do you think other questions should be added to this list? We welcome suggestions; email us at: reliefoversight@disasteraccountability.org

Notes, Provisions, and Corrections
 On July 5th, 2010, Healing Hands for Haiti International Foundation Inc. submitted a survey to ReliefOversight. Unfortunately, the survey was submitted ten days past the deadline – June 25th – and so it could not be included in the analysis of relief work provided in this report. Although ReliefOversight did allow organizations to submit surveys past the deadline, this survey was received after all analysis had been completed. In order to facilitate public access to all information gathered by ReliefOversight, however, the survey will be displayed in the Index. On July 6th, 2010, Food for the Hungry submitted contact information to ReliefOversight. Unfortunately, the contact information was submitted eleven days past the deadline and could thus not be included in the analysis of relief work provided in this report.

Mini-Grants to NGOs: Provided 8 mini grants of $15,000 to international NGOs so they could ship needed equipment, supplies, and medicines in commercial vessels (Feed the Children, Harvest International, IRD, ADRA, others participated). Communications: Published nine different alerts on transportation, warehousing, and security to over 3000 individuals involved in Emergency Response. Reports: In collaboration with the U.S. Coast Guard, Marine Agents, and other military operations, establish a Logistics Cluster and, leveraging the collaborative efforts of this group, sent Port Update Reports to member organization, informing them of private source and Coast Guard information on logistics issues throughout the country. Charity Goods Identification and Measurement: Coordinated with US SouthCom to establish a public/private partnership that identified thousands of pounds of humanitarian aid in transit to Miami for trans - shipment to Haiti. America’s Relief Team collaborates with SouthCom through a Memorandum of Understanding; the two organizations coordinate the selection of sites for humanitarian and civic assistance and provide community facilitation. Additionally, America’s Relief Team provides support to NGOs on the usage of general military and Navy freight programs. Staging Warehouses: Provided over 100,000 square feet of pro-bono staging warehouse space for NGOs moving their donations cargo through Miami. Trans-Shipment of Aid: Accepted and then reassigned more than 120 tons of aid to smaller NGOs, upon notification that they could obtain a qualified consignee on the ground. 33

44

One challenge is that CAMA's approach is focused on strengthening the local CSO's capacity to address their own needs. This includes them either showing what they have done to date and/or demonstrating what they can contribute now. A part of that strategy is to not have full time agency personnel in Haiti. This is a strength in that it allows the local CSO's the opportunity to develop local solutions. The challenge is if the solution isn't workable. This is turned into a strength as it allows CAMA agency staff to go over the process and brainstorm with the local CSO(s) alternative options. It becomes a capacity strengthening opportunity. 9. Please discuss how your organization is collaborating with other organizations in this specific relief effort. We are in discussion with other agencies about partnering in shelter distributions and income generation activities. Also, we are collaborating in PTSD training and support.

Health Housing Shelter Food Long-term recovery Economic Independence (CFW); Education (Tents and School Kits); Water & Sanitation 5. Expected outcomes/goals for your organization's relief effort activities? In the aftermath of the January 12th disaster, Episcopal Relief & Development’s objective is to support the rescue, relief, and recovery efforts of the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti and its relief and development arm known as CEDDISEC (Centre Diocesain de Development et de Secours) that they may help and heal people and communities that have been impacted by the crisis. Episcopal Relief & Development’s areas of focus in the Haiti Recovery Program include: Disaster Response & Community Recovery, Development of Economic Opportunities and Independence (Employment, Livelihoods, Microfinance), Community Health and Water & Sanitation, and Institutional Reinforcement/Capacity Building. 6. Please list any benchmarks for success in your organization's relief operations if any exist. Within the first three months, Episcopal Relief & Development’s support for the Diocese of Haiti’s rescue and relief efforts assisted over 60,000 people with 217 tons of food, water, shelter, health care, sanitation, and other basic assistance. As work transitions from relief to recovery, Episcopal Relief & Development anticipates assisting an additional 40,000 people through health care, shelter, sanitation, and short-term employment initiatives. Specific targets include: • 30,000+ to receive access to Health Care through weekly mobile clinics in rural areas of Léogâne and Carrefour. • 31,000+ to be assisted with Shelter, including the construction of an estimated 200 Transitional Shelters. • 9,300+ to receive access to improved Sanitation through the reconstruction of community and household latrines. • 1,820+ vulnerable and/or displaced women, men, and youth to be Employed through 40+ Cash-for-Work community-based recovery initiatives. 7. Please describe how your organization is achieving its benchmarks. Episcopal Relief & Development supports the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti to assist populations in both quake and non-quake zones; giving recognition to the contextual differences and ways people have been affected. Seventy plus Episcopal parishes in the quake zone surrounding the epicenter (i.e., from Carrefour and Léogâne to Jacmel and Bainet) are priority areas for support of those left homeless and hardest hit. While others parishes throughout non-quake zones are secondary areas for economic support as they become temporary homes for those continuing to be displaced from Port-au-Prince. 8. Please discuss any strengths/weaknesses. The major strength of Episcopal Relief & Development’s work in Haiti rests with its focus on supporting a Haitian institution to not simply be engaged and but actually lead Haiti on its road to recovery. While this approach may sometimes feel a bit slower in its initial phases of response, in the long-run it results in a more sustainable personal and social transformation and recovery from within. 9. Please discuss how your organization is collaborating with other organizations in this specific relief effort. 51

Episcopal Relief & Development seeks to facilitate linkages between national and international NGOs and the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti’s nation-wide network of parishes, health centers, schools, colleges, and universities. To date, collaborative efforts have been established with IMA World Health, Lutheran World Relief, Lutheran World Federation, Water for Life, and Children’s Nutrition Program, as well as the Episcopal Diocese of the Dominican Republic.

4. Sector(s) of services provided by your organization? (Please choose from the list and add any not listed.) Food, shelter, and shelters for orphanages; rebuilding orphanage, church & school. 5. Expected outcomes/goals for your organization's relief effort activities? In 2010, ICA responded to the earthquake crisis in Haiti by focusing on the needs of orphans in Leogane, Haiti. ICA provided enough emergency food and water for three orphanages to last at least three months. In addition, ICA cleared debris from one compound where an orphanage, church and school had all collapsed. ICA built two temporary shelters within 3 weeks of the earthquake and then built 5 more for a total of 7 shelters at 4 orphanages. ICA was identified as one of the first organizations to begin the rebuilding process. ICA is now

57

working to rebuild the ICA orphanage for more than 100 children and school for more than 400 children in its entirety. In addition to the Orphan Care Work: After the earthquake in January 2010, ICA led large food distributions in Leogane, Haiti in partnership with the U.S. Marines. Totals delivered during the first three weeks included 14,748 MRE's (Meals Ready to Eat), 147,480 people fed, and 25,710 gallons of water. During the first two months after the earthquake, ICA distributed food and water to more than 150,000 people. Quote from U.S. Marine Sergeant Joshua Wruble: “…Over the next 14 days, I was amazed at the integrity, dedication and tireless work ethic you and your organization have demonstrated (interested in becoming a Marine?). Your ability to locate the people in need and get them the supplies they so desperately needed has been nothing short of remarkable. The partnership that our Marine unit had formed with ICA has become the blueprint for success in this devastated region. Our ability to bring the resources ashore and provide the necessary security, coupled with your complete devotion to an efficient, honest and timely distribution has saved thousands of lives and will positively shape and influence generations in Haiti.” 6. Please list any benchmarks for success in your organization's relief operations if any exist. Completion of reconstruction of an orphanage for 100 children and school for 400 children to be completed by end of 2011. 7. Please describe how your organization is achieving its benchmarks. ICA began by partnering with the U.S. Marines to meet the immediate needs of food and water for the orphans. We then began removing all debris within the first few weeks by partnering with the Canadian Navy. We built a temporary shelter at the orphanage within 3 weeks after the earthquake, again with the help of the Canadian Navy. We have began rebuilding the outer fence. We have set up a 40x50 ft tent which will be used for the school and church until it is rebuilt. ICA has been meeting with architects and the orphanage staff to redesign the building. We have raised 2/3 of the funds. We are now finalizing the detailed plans and will begin rebuilding the actual structures in the upcoming months. 8. Please discuss any strengths/weaknesses. ICA's strengths include partnering with the US Marines, Canadian Navy and local community leaders to distribute large amounts of emergency food and water to thousands of people within the first few weeks of the Earthquake quickly and effectively. Another strength is that we began removing debris very quickly from an orphanage that had collapsed and it brought hope to the local people that rebuilding would begin soon. We also built 7 shelters at 4 orphanages by the end of the first month. 9. Please discuss how your organization is collaborating with other organizations in this specific relief effort. ICA partnered with the Canadian Navy to remove debris and build shelters at 7 orphanages. ICA partnered with the U.S. Marines and existing local community leaders to distribute food, water and other supplies. ICA is partnering with the indigenous staff to rebuild the orphanage,

35 Haitian communities including two new partner groups adopting simple methods of sanitation, like SODIS (Solar disinfection for drinking water), Tipi tap (wash hands with a simple device hanging on a tree), increase the use and building of latrines in 60% in the next 2 years, becoming part of bible study groups in homes. 6. Please list any benchmarks for success in your organization's relief operations if any exist. Before intervention, no communities were implementing SODIS. June reports show 18 villages implementing it from 1 family to 25% of target families, including two schools. A survey is being conducted to have a baseline in all villages, depending on community initiatives. 7. Please describe how your organization is achieving its benchmarks. In Partnership with other Community Development organizations we are active in two fronts: regular conferences for teaching and site visits done by key Community Development trainers to encourage and review teachings in each village. 8. Please discuss any strengths/weaknesses. Knowledgeable nationals that train their partners in villages are our greatest strength, followed by a great strategy for Holistic Community Development that has been effective in multiple countries, including Haiti since 1993. Weaknesses: A change of mentality from employee to missionary among the nationals is needed to keep sustainability through the years. A sense of personal call has to replace a feeling of "employee from an International NGO". Servant leadership needs to be our way of living. It is a challenge more than a weakness, because we see it happening already. 9. Please discuss how your organization is collaborating with other organizations in this specific relief effort. Complementing funding with three other NGOs in Haiti towards a common goal, and more recently offering training to new partner organizations in other locations in the country, to teach Community Development.

It does not blog-like) include an appeal for funds. 62

d) If A is yes, please provide the location of your organization's http://www.oxfamamerica.org/emergen publicly accessible online archive of cies/earthquake-in-haiti/what-oxfam-issituation reports (URL) doing e) How many of your organization's situation reports are available in an No out-of-date summaries are online, publicly accessible archive? 0 available on our Web site. 4. Sector(s) of services provided by your organization? (Please choose from the list and add any not listed.) Oxfam’s programs since the earthquake have been focused on water/sanitation/hygiene (WASH), shelter, and emergency food security and livelihoods (EFSL), which is in line with priority needs identified in coordination with the UN cluster mechanism. The geographic area of focus included the Port-au-Prince metropolitan area as well as areas outside Port-auPrince affected by the earthquake. Additionally, strong emphasis was placed on disaster risk reduction (DRR), accountability to beneficiaries, gender issues, HIV/AIDS and protection. Where possible, psychosocial counseling was an element of the services provided. 5. Expected outcomes/goals for your organization's relief effort activities? In the coming three years, Oxfam aims to make significant and identifiable contributions to a better life for Haitian people, particularly those affected by the earthquake. We will make strategic interventions aimed at strengthening both civil society and governmental organizations so that citizens are working with a more accountable, transparent, and responsive government at the local and national level. Through direct and indirect Oxfam support, we expect that women, men, and young people will be able to identify significant improvements in empowerment, equality, and security. They will have improved employment and income generating options, and access to basic services that significantly exceed preearthquake levels. Their economy will be more diverse, and they will have greater resilience in the face of environmental risks. 6. Please list any benchmarks for success in your organization's relief operations if any exist. The WASH strategy has focused on: - the provision of water/sanitation/hygiene services directly to homeless populations (water bladders, latrines, showers, trash collection and disposal, water drainage, public health education) - re-establishment of former services such as piped water systems and water vendors - collection and disposal of trash, and clearance of rubble The livelihoods strategy has focused on: - provision to populations of immediate financial and food support (safety-net grants, canteens providing free food to elderly and disabled, cash-for-work, etc.) - support to people to restart livelihoods to generate income (cash grants) - support to farmers in rural areas (vocational training; guaranteed sale of crops, which are redistributed as food aid) The shelter strategy has focused on: - emergency shelter and assistance to the population - where possible, special attention to be paid to the situation of renters and squatters

63

Additionally, strong emphasis was placed on disaster risk reduction (DRR), accountability to beneficiaries, gender issues, HIV/AIDS, and protection. Where possible, psychosocial counselling was part of the services provided. We are generally satisfied that we’ve met these expectations. We are currently reaching more than 420,000 people with our work 7. Please describe how your organization is achieving its benchmarks. Key benchmark achievements: • Oxfam has reached 421,000 people with essential aid; • in the areas where Oxfam is working, there have been no reported outbreaks of waterborne disease Other accomplishments: 19,800 people have benefitted from Oxfam cash-for-work programs 24,000 people have benefitted from Oxfam livelihoods-recovery programs 8. Please discuss any strengths/weaknesses. Strengths: 55 years of experience providing clean water, latrines, and other essential aid quickly after disasters, under very challenging conditions; strong focus on sustainability and strengthening local capacity - especially that of vulnerable groups within a disaster-affected community – increases the impact of our programs. Weakness: Since the earthquake, we have scaled up our operation from a fairly small staff that was working in Haiti well before the quake, to a staff of over 500 to meet the emergency needs. We have to move as quickly as possible to meet the needs of over two million affected people, while at the same time controlling the quality of our work and training our staff to work in a complex urban disaster zone. This is a major challenge. 9. Please discuss how your organization is collaborating with other organizations in this specific relief effort. Oxfam plays an active role in the UN-led cluster system, which is the central coordination system for Haiti relief. The clusters bring together agencies working on various sectors including water and sanitation, shelter, protection, etc. We collaborate with our colleagues via the cluster system on a daily basis. Oxfam also participates in the Haiti Humanitarian Country Team, which brings together Government, UN, and NGO leadership to discuss planning, coordination, and problem resolution. We also work with more than two dozen local organizations on relief work within specific communities we serve.

Hi Jocelyn, Thanks for your email. I have passed along to the appropriate contact. In case it would be of assistance for your reporting, we have already been extremely transparent in our reporting on Haiti, releasing comprehensive reports each of the first three months since the earthquake struck, and we will be releasing another comprehensive report for the 6-month anniversary. In the meantime, you can go to www.redcross.org/haiti and get a breakdown of our spending for the first three months and anticipated spending for next 3-5 years. We provide other detailed information as well: * We are audited every year by KPMG. Our operations in Haiti will be part of that audit this year and the audited financial statement will be posted on our website, as it always is. * We file IRS Form 990 which discloses our revenues, expense and all other important financial information, and that can be accessed from public websites like Guidestar. * In addition to publishing its independently audited financial statements, posting its IRS Form 990 and Form 990-T, Red Cross finances are also reviewed by the US Army Audit Agency each year and reported to Congress; that letter is also made available to the public (http://www.redcross.org/wwwfiles/Documents/pdf/corppubs/FY09FinancialStatement.pdf, p.2) Best, Mat

No time for surveys that don't actually produce money but I like Ben so here is the basic report we inspected 1500 buildings with the UN and Ministry of public works we trained 560 masons in how to rebuild earthquake resistant housing based on Chilean practices, we have 1200 camp stoves stuck in customs, we invested $30,000 in two start up companies focussed on reconstruction enersa and shelter to home. We raised $125,000 (which actually ended up restricting our general ops budget by about 25%, http://tedfellows.posterous.com/show-me-the-money-disastersrestrictions-and) after the quake and spent $145,000. We blog our results at aidg.org/blog and put them in our newsletter. http://www.aidg.org/newsletters/haitiearthquake_05_2010.htm We're trying to raise a few hundred thousand to train 10,000 masons but all the groups we applied to for "Rapid Action Grants" from in February and March still have yet to respond, with decision dates in July and August. Clinton Bush fund has been moving like escargo. Please plug that in your database, any general financial data please get yourself from guidestar. I need to get pipes into villages. Sincerely, Pete

Dear Jocelyn, Thank you for your email, but Mercy Corps is currently reporting to Transparency International and InterAction. We do, however, have a 90-day progress report on Haiti which I have included. We will also be publishing an Accountability Report of our own for the four-month mark, which we would be happy to provide if you would get in touch with us then. Sincerely, Geri Manzano Donor Relations Representative

Mercy Corps 90-Day Fact Sheet
This fact sheet was submitted to ReliefOversight by Mercy Corps when asked to participate in the survey. It is dated April 16, 2010. Due to technicalities, the fact sheet is displayed in text-only format. Several pictures have been eliminated. The rest of the content, however, remains the same, retaining the sense and purpose originally intended by Mercy Corps. MERCY CORPS IN HAITI: FIRST 90 DAYS BUILD TOWARD LONG-TERM RECOVERY Ninety days after Haiti’s devastating January 12 earthquake, Mercy Corps is laying the groundwork for long-term recovery. The agency’s team of 85 experts, including more than 65 Haitians, is helping survivors access resources such as food, water and post-trauma assistance. Moving forward, Mercy Corps is prioritizing the creation of jobs, particularly in areas outside Port-au-Prince. Mercy Corps has a long track record of helping communities transition from receiving aid to carrying out their own recovery after natural disasters. Our Haiti team includes experts in water, food, shelter, health, job creation, logistics and psycho-social support for children.

(Photo: Miguel Samper for Mercy Corps) Creating Jobs, Hastening Economic Recovery Mercy Corps’ cash-for-work program to date has employed 3,820 Haitians to clean up their neighborhoods, distribute food and build infrastructure that supports clean water and sanitation. We’re currently working in Bas Duval, Bois Blanc, Coicou, Corlette, Fonchon, Lycée Jean Marie Vincent, Pierre St. Charles, Quartier Fortin and Solon Menos 2 and 3. Earning money lets survivors purchase the supplies their families need - and, in so doing, help businesses and markets resume normal trade. Cash-for-work participants help build drainage ditches to protect neighborhoods against flooding during the rainy season, clean water systems to keep families healthy and latrines that will serve 42,000 people. The next critical steps in re-booting Haiti’s economy will include cash grants so that people can rebuild assets like small businesses, fishing boats and food carts. We are also looking into partnerships using microfinance and remittances to allow nascent businesses to stabilize and grow. Mercy Corps is already working with microfinance provider FONKOZE to help recapitalize its clients post-earthquake. Efforts like this are essential to return Haiti’s economy to a functioning state. Providing Healing Support to Children Haitian children who survived the earthquake could be negatively affected for life. We’re helping them heal through Comfort for Kids, the post-crisis counseling methodology we codeveloped with global workplace childcare provide Bright Horizons after the attacks of 9/11. Mercy Corps has used the program to help children recover from disasters around the world. Through Comfort for Kids, within 12 weeks Mercy Corps taught 750 pediatricians, physiotherapists, nurses, teachers, psychologists, social workers, child care workers and parents, as well as staff from other NGOs, how to care for distressed children. We also laid the foundation for long-term youth programming. Ultimately, we will train 5,000 adults, benefiting 150,000 children. 75

As part of Comfort for Kids, we are publishing: • 5,000 Creole-language copies of the 60-page booklet What Happened to Our World, adapted from our responses to other disasters to help adults understand the needs of crisisaffected children. This booklet is being distributed to Haitian mental health providers, senior professionals and others who work with affected children. • 10,000 Creole-language copies of the children’s workbook My Earthquake Story to help kids express their experiences and recover from them. We also are distributing 4,000 child-friendly kits - containing age-appropriate toys, hygiene supplies, blankets and art materials - to Haitian orphans. Caption: Last year, Mercy Corps helped 16.7 million people turn crisis into opportunity. Food Baskets Feed Thousands for A Month Shortly after the quake, Mercy Corps delivered 15 tons of food to the neediest areas, including the main Port-au-Prince hospital. And, working with the UN World Food Program and communities, we are distributing food baskets containing one-month supplies of rice, beans, oil, salt and high-protein flour to 33,000 people in the capital’s poorest neighborhoods. As part of our cash-for-work program, we employed 25 local people to help distribute 259 metric tons of food.

Photo: Miguel Samper for Mercy Corps Water, Sanitation and Shelter Through cash-for-work, we are hiring Haitians to build drainage channels to protect against flooding in neighborhoods where the threat is imminent. Our team installed a water filtration unit at a local hospital, and more such units will be installed at other locations. We have delivered hygiene kits - with mosquito nets and sanitation supplies - to survivors, as well as plastic sheeting to be used for shelter. Our water and sanitation experts, in partnership with local staff, have provided more than 100 latrines serving 10,000 people, with plans for a total of 500 latrines serving 50,000 people. A Foundation for Self-Sufficiency The 7.0-magnitude January 12 Haiti earthquake left 3 million people in need of aid, exacerbating the dire humanitarian situation in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Haiti suffers extreme hunger and political instability, and this disaster only increases the needs of impoverished Haitian families. Mercy Corps has special expertise in disaster response that establishes a foundation for self-sufficiency. In the coming weeks and months, Mercy Corps plans to expand its work to include the provinces around Port-au-Prince, particularly the Central Plateau area, where approximately 500,000 people fled after the earthquake. The agency will work to make these areas economically viable and provide critical resources to displaced families who have settled there. HOW TO HELP Mercy Corps is accepting donations toward our earthquake response. Public support has been strong, and companies such as Alcoa, Amazon, Best Buy, Gap, Genentech, ITT Corporation, Nike, ProLogis, Trilogy/Voilà and Western Union have generously contributed to
