    The Red Cross fact is misleading – they built over 6,000 transitional homes in Haiti, as well as providing temporary shelters for over 130.000 people. The reason the Red Cross did not build more permanent homes was due to competing land title claim and ownership issues with the land they planned to build new communities on, along with the fact that culturally almost no one they were assisting wanted to move into a new community. Likely corruption among the zoning and governmental authorities impeded them in other ways too. Additionally not all the funding raised was going to new homes – the vast majority was to emergency relief efforts unrelated to building new homes, such as cholera prevention, sanitation and other healthcare concerns.
