The Challenge of Rebuilding Haiti

Haiti is not like Sudan or Somalia. The island has plenty of fruits and vegetables. The people need money to buy local food. In addition, Haitians are not familiar with MRE, meal ready to eat. Bringing bottle of plastic water from overseas is counterproductive. Purification machines and water purification tablets could have done a more economical job. In addition, plastic bottles are bad for the environment. Finally, the rebuilding efforts have to focus on creating “manual” jobs clearing debris and restoring basic infrastructure. Haitian professionals had to lead the reconstruction effort and be accountable for it.  (Jan 29, 2010 | post #1)

Haitians mostly ignore Senate run-off elections

$16 Million Dollars gone in smoke!! This is a complete embarrassment for the international Community, who keeps repeating the same mistake over and over again. Haitians people are fed up with corrupt politicians. We need better choices.  (Jun 22, 2009 | post #1)

Haiti waiting for first penny

It seems to us that the Prime Minister Michele Pierre-Louis is on the right track, but she not moving fast enough. She is emphasizing and counting too much on the donors contributions that taking time to flourish. The donors are hesitating and are skeptical about this government intent to manage these funds properly. Apparently, this government is not trustworthy, and the Prime Minister needs to push harder.  (Jun 19, 2009 | post #1)

Haiti: Students demonstrate in support of minimum wage in...

The voice of the Parliament is the voice of the people. President Preval should agree to the minimum wage and pass the legislation into law. From $2.00/day to$5.00 for 10 hours work is not too much to ask and long time overdue. We at the Haitian Americans Today Organization stands firm with the student mobilization. We are asking for the release of the students who are arrested and detained, and to be compensated. Michel Nau  (Jun 12, 2009 | post #1)

Clinton Can`t Help Haiti Says Fidel

With all due respect, I believe that the former Cuban president Fidel Castro is wrong to say that former US president WJ Clinton can’t help Haiti. This is a country that needs all the help it can get and every little ones would be greatly appreciated. After the fall of President Jean Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier in February 1986, the economic and social situation of Haiti has worsening. Haiti can not be fed with communist propaganda alone. The Cuban government of Raul Castro is begging the Obama’s administration to lift off the embargo without human right concession. We would like to see freedom of speech, and free election for all Cubans. Michel Nau  (May 26, 2009 | post #1)

The challenge of birth in Haiti

Even tough this is a beautiful and sad story, the 670 pregnancy-related deaths per 100,000 live births that Haiti records each year could have been avoided if a serious birth control program was implemented. No wonder "They're having babies in the street, so obviously they don't have the means to pay for medical help." In addition, the population of Haiti keeps growing at an alarming rate. Haiti is poor country and powerless being caught between prolife and prochoice Christian missionary groups that are managing this important issue according to their religious belief.  (May 12, 2009 | post #1)

Team of UN advisors head to Haiti to assist in economic, ...

The barely $325 million made at the donor conference in Washington, DC last month on behalf of Haiti is just a drop in a bucket and just enough for crooked politicians, international and local NGO’s to swallow. Trust me! The Haitians people would not get anything out of this. Last summer 2008 four back-to-back tropical storms devastated Haiti leaving $1 billion of damage in this country which was already the poorest in the Western Hemisphere. Enough of these advisory trips back and forth to Haiti. Let be serious about it and start doing some tangible work.  (May 5, 2009 | post #1)
