NPR Reports: “Red Cross doesn’t make clear what percentage of their dollars will go directly to helping the victims of the storm.”

In 2010 a report showed The American Red Cross spent 25% of donations for the 2010 Haiti earthquake ($125 million) on “its own internal expenses”.
This was far more than the non-profit originally disclosed.
The report also shows Red Cross top officials blocking investigators and releasing incomplete information about its Haiti relief program to the public.
Concluding “there are substantial and fundamental concerns about [the Red Cross] as an organization.”
“Red Cross doesn’t make clear what percentage of their dollars will go directly to helping the victims of the storm…”
[NPR Reporter] Chang: Through donations, how much of every dollar goes to relief?
[Red Cross executive] Kieserman: Yeah, I don’t think I know the answer to that any better than the chief fundraiser knows
