UNANIMA International in Haiti

1 October 2010

Lucille Goulet SSA, board member of UNANIMA International recounted the plight of women and children in Haiti she visited in a recent trip to Haiti. Many are still housed in tents that were donated by the international community shortly after the earthquake 9 months ago in January. There is little international presence now in contrast to a country overrun by internationals in the first weeks after the earthquake. Only about 1/3 of the rubble has been cleared away making it very difficult for any kind of reconstruction to begin.
