Don't you just get sick and tired about the usual pictures on Haiti on TV

I am getting sick and tired about the usual pictures that I see on TV, Newspaper, Youtube, and other medias whenever the Haiti subject comes up.


This is what I see for the most part: " We are doing a fundraising to buy shoes for Haitian children". "Donate so we can help the people of Haiti". "Fundraising to bring drinking water to Haiti". "Haiti the poorest nation in the western hemisphere".

Do you really help them if you feed everyone on the day they are hungry and that is it?

I truely believe that Haiti has become a laboratory for some. It is a place to bring your spoiled children when you want to teach them a lesson or want to show them how well they have it.

...... just a thought !

- Haiti will still receive a lot of very diverse solidarity aid, even in appearance, but regardless of that this aid reaches the people as a whole or not, what is what we really hope in justice, that those resources consist of more than just to be that ...
