Haiti: Three Years Later
Monday, January 14, 2013
Amy Wilentz, author of The Rainy Season: Haiti Since Duvalier and Farewell, Fred Voodoo: A Letter from Haiti, and Laurent DuBois, professor of History at Duke University and the author of the 2012 book, now in paperback, Haiti: The Aftershocks of History, look at what’s changed in the three years since the devastating earthquake.
It can be difficult to know where to make a contribution to the ongoing relief and development effort in Haiti. Ms. Wilentz and Prof. DuBois gave us three recommendations.
*CODEP-The Comprehensive Development Project works on reforestation and self-sufficiency projects in rural Haiti.
*Partners in Health-Provides "preferential medical care" to Haiti's poorest citizens.
*Ti Kay Haiti-Dr. Megan Coffee treats and works to prevent Tuberculosis and HIV in Port-au-Prince.
