South-Sudan, Uganda, Zambia, Malawi and Congo are all mineral rich countries with with lots of oil, uranium, gold, etc.
Haiti is still recovering from its natural disaster some years back.
So? We can buy their minerals if they wanna exploit them. If they don't wanna exploit them, then it's none of our business.
If they are so mineral rich then they don't need any economic aid, do they? If they are so mineral rich then they can pay for shit and we don't have to give it to them for free, or worse, as bribes or to steal their mineral wealth.
And Haiti post earthquake is the same as Haiti pre earthquake. A squalor of a shithole. No amount of aid is going to help them and they fucked themselves through their own idiocy of coups, violence and governmental ineptitude and corruption. No aid for them either!
Yeah, help them in the short term after the earthquake, but as you said, that was "years back", the time for charity is over.
Hell, even CC did a Haiti fundraising deal thing a ma bob. How efficiently do you trust that money was spent? eh? Not very well I'll tell ya! Giving economic aid to them is like throwing money down a hole that has a never ending fire at the bottom. f*ck that.
