Aid offered per country/org to Haiti

Looking for some data (like a pie chart perhaps) that shows which governments have pledged aid (and how much) to Haiti. Would also like to compare private sector pledges/amounts per country too. Anyone got a good source(s)?

Having a hard time finding good data. Perhaps the Dominican Republic is helping big time, after all they share the island.

How is the Haitian government involved?


edit: If this Wikipedia info is of any worth, I found these interesting bits:


Haiti now ranks 149th of 182 countries in the United Nations Human Development Index (2006).

Foreign aid makes up approximately 30–40% of the national government's budget.

The largest donor is the United States – followed by Canada, and the European Union also contributes aid.[68] From 1990 to 2003, Haiti received more than $4 billion in aid. The United States alone had provided Haiti with 1.5 billion in aid. [69] Venezuela and Cuba also make various contributions to Haiti's economy, especially after alliances were renewed in 2006 and 2007. In January 2010, China promised $4.2 million for the quake-hit island,[70] and President Obama pledged $100 million in US assistance.[71] European Union nations promised more than 400 million euros ($616 million) in emergency aid and reconstruction funds for Haiti.[72]

U.S. aid to the Haitian government was completely cut off in 2001–2004 after the 2000 election was disputed and President Aristide was accused of various misdeeds.[73] After Aristide's departure in 2004, aid was restored, and the Brazilian army led the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti peacekeeping operation. Following almost 4 years of recession ending in 2004, the economy grew by 1.5% in 2005.[74]

In 2005 Haiti's total external debt reached an estimated US$1.3 billion, which corresponds to a debt per capita of US$169. In September 2009, Haiti met the conditions set out by the IMF and World Bank's Heavily Indebted Poor Countries program to qualify for cancellation of its external debt.
