The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a faith-based coalition of 34,000 churches comprised of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African Americans, calls on the American Red Cross to pay for the damages of hurricane Matthew on behalf of all Haitian citizens given their past sins of over half a billion dollars during the historic earthquake in Haiti. Haiti has lost around 800 citizens and the American Red Cross should step up and do the right thing and at least give Haiti one billion dollars in cash. Why should the American public pay again to fund the sins of this immoral international organization that steals from people when they are at their worst.
Rev. Anthony Evans, President of the National Black Church Initiative says, “The National Black Church Initiative along with its 15.7 million members will not give a dime to the Red Cross because of what they did the last time they were in Haiti. The American Red Cross needs to pay for their sins and give Haiti one billion dollars to handle this particular crisis. And the Clinton Foundation is also to be cited as perpetuating this type of international fraud on the people of Haiti. Give Haitians back their money.”
On June 3, 2015, ProPublica and National Public Radio (NPR) published an article revealing a string of fund misappropriation, knowingly misleading donors and the public about relief progress, and overall mismanagement of relief efforts in Haiti. We urge Congress to investigate the American Red Cross to determine:
1) Whether relief dollars were handled appropriately and disbursed to those projects to which they were intended;
2) Whether senior American Red Cross leadership knowingly misled donors and the public about the appropriation of relief dollars; and
3) Mandate that the organization disclose details of how it has spent the hundreds of millions of dollars donated for Haiti.
The National Black Church Initiative asks the American people to not contribute a dime for the Haiti rescue to the Red Cross given the fact that the American Red Cross stole over half a billion dollars and should dip into the treasure they took to pay for the relief efforts. We will be urging our members to not give a dime to the American Red Cross, only through our religious arm which is the Lott Carey Foundation.
