I don't know that much about Haiti, so I won't be very able to contribute to this subject. But the way I understand this statement is not what's going on. Aid is being provided primarily for relief efforts from the quake. It's not like resources are being poured in for the sake of rebuilding everything. It might make a lot of difference for people whom lost what little they had and will die without help. That may then lead to the next question as to what will happen after that. Since it's described as such a terrible economy and unsustainable to begin with, providing aid may just save their lives long enough to die of something over a longer course of time. At least the people who're rescued may appreciate knowing they didn't die alone. Tough subject.
