    From The Huffington Post:

     
    Wyclef Jean became emotional toward the end of his press conference today, in response to criticism that his organization, Yele Haiti, hasn’t been completely forthcoming about its use of donations.

    Wyclef began by discussing his history as a Haitian, moving to the United States and living the “American dream.” He talked about his father and the widespread damage in Haiti before addressing the allegations against Yele Haiti.

    “Have we made mistakes before? Yes. Did I ever use Yele money for personal benefits? Absolutely not….Yele’s books are open and transparent and we have been given a clean bill of health by an external auditor every year since we started.”
