You’ve probably heard some facts about Haiti. You’ve heard that it’s one of the poorest countries in the world, that it’s constantly devastated by natural disasters, that it’s dangerous and that they need help to rebuild, to overcome their situation and to move forward.
The truth is the opposite : Haiti doesn’t need your help
Haiti has more than enough “help”… to the point that it’s not actually helpful
What’s happened is a bunch of “hand outs” from people who think they know how to “help”. They’re outsiders from another country with no experience on the ground yet they think they know what’s best for Haiti. They “think” but they don’t “know” and in that small difference there’s a huge impact… and it’s not positive or helpful
See, Haiti and Haitians have everything they need to help themselves. It’s an amazing country filled with strong people who have endured generations of turmoil, devastation and conflict yet they persevere and want to keep persevering.. on their own with your “help”
Which is great news for you!
