The aftermath of the earthquake that striked Haiti earlier this year reveals, more than the bankruptcy of the country's State, the failure of the international organizations responsible for supposedly " rebuilding" it. In a personal and ethnographical essay, the author describes the first days that followed the natural catastrophe and comments on the distance that separates those organizations from Haitian society, which lies at the root of its own inefficiency.
