I am heartsick about what I am seeing on the news. We have a sponsored child through Planusa.org who lives in Jacmel and I am worried about her and her family. Such a tragedy for those who have so little already.

I would like to thank the international community for their helps. Haitians are good people and they deserve respect and dignity. I feel bad for some people who take the occasion once again to humiliate haitians.
From the bottom of my heart I thank you all.
