Making a difference in Haiti
On Tuesday, January 12, 2010, a magnitude 7 earthquake struck the town of Leogane, just west of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The effects on the city were staggering. As emergency response took shape in the days and weeks following the quake, donations from around the world began pouring into Haiti. PwC immediately pledged to donate its services to the relief and recovery effort as well.
This video provides an inside look into the lives and impact of the PwC team members who worked with the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission's, Performance and Anti-Corruption Office (PAO), to help ensure the funds pouring into Haiti were used properly, effectively and constructively. By leveraging their key forensics skill sets, the team worked to bring transparency, effectiveness and meaningful solutions to the devastated nation.
Throughout the course of the project, which wrapped up in October 2011, the PwC team monitored projects related to $3.2 billion worth of donations and committed funds across 120 recovery and relief projects.
