Photo detail

In this March 15, 2013 photo, people use a pedestrian bridge at the entrance at the country’s main courthouse, which was renovated by Chemonics International Inc., a for-profit international development company based in Washington D.C., in downtown of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. A new report on American aid to Haiti in the wake of that country's devastating earthquake finds much of the money went to U.S.-based companies and organizations while just 1 percent went directly to Haitian companies. The findings confirm a long-term sense that U.S. foreign aid benefits more people at home than abroad as it takes a detour through Washington and its suburbs.
