About Giving To Haiti
After the earthquake in Haiti, the world responded generously. When very little of this generosity benefited the people it was meant to reach, generosity was replaced by cynicism. The truth is, few organizations understand how to make a difference in a country such as Haiti.
It is not enough to give. One must also know how to give. Extreme poverty has ruled the people of Haiti for two hundred years. It is woven into Haitiʼs history. Change occurs slowly, sometimes one life at a time. Improvements can be almost imperceptible against the backdrop of suffering, but they are life-altering to the people they touch.
The Haitian people demonstrate the best of humanity under the most inhumane conditions. They have retained a spirit of optimism and kindness despite all odds. Haiti matters if you believe that human life matters and that each individual is priceless and irreplaceable.
