I live about 4-5 blocks from that what we in gonaives call "tent city"

Right now there are only a few of them left. Any rain we do get is not really wanted. But Things are sooo much better then they were last year. I was here during the hurricanes of 2008.

Other then just saying all the bad things about Gonaives, why dont you try to put up some positive things?

new water drains being put under the streets

more food is available to the haitians

houses are being cleaned and rebuilt

If we started to show the good stuff instead of the bad. Maybe the haitians would start seeing that too.

They read this stuff, they see the bad thigs.....show them the beautiful side of haiti for a change
