It is with great sorrow that I'm reading this article about the new disasters that are affecting the Haitian people.

Once again nature shows no mercy to our people.

We must continue to strive to improve the socio-economic situation of the entire country.

Such calamities cannot stop us from doing what we have to do to make it in Haiti.
