PRESS RELEASE - For immediate release
Earthquake of August 14, 2021: We must support local organizations in Haiti
Montreal, August 20, 2021 - On August 14, a powerful earthquake caused major damage in Haiti. Solidarité Québec-Haiti encourages its members and supporters to contribute to the recovery efforts of the most affected communities, in the departments of Sud, Grande-Anse and Nippes. It is essential to prioritize organizations that have an active presence in communities and are led by Haitians.
This resolution to prioritize local Haitian organizations is almost unanimous among analysts of the situation because of the many scandals linked to the disastrous international management of Haiti's reconstruction funds, following the destructive earthquake on January 2010 in Port au Prince. These funds were linked to the IHRC, which was led by Bill Clinton and Jean-Max Bellerive.
It is evident that the Haitian people remain extremely vulnerable. The foreign occupation of Haiti by the Core Group keeps appointing puppet governments made up of members of the maligned neo-Duvalist regime, the PHTK.
While SQH continues to demand that Canada withdraw from the neocolonial Core Group and let the Haitian people choose their leaders in peace, in all sovereignty, we encourage the inhabitants of Quebec and Canada to increase gestures of solidarity. sincere with our brothers and sisters in Haiti.
In solidarity, we offer here a non-exhaustive list of local Haitian organizations with which our members have recently had a positive experience.
