To USAID Regarding Haiti

Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, has been crushed by an earthquake that killed thousands.

They need help. We must dig the people of Haiti out of the rubble, feed and clothe them and work with them to re-build their country.

Yet some see this as an excuse to strip their economy of what assets it has left. Some see the shock of the earthquake as an opportunity to impose policies on a grieving people. But, this is an opportunity to rebuild Haiti and leave it with a functioning government and stable businesses owned and controlled by the people of Haiti.

We need to use this as an opportunity to allow Haiti to emerge with a functioning government, a vision of their future and the means to support themselves and flourish. Provide help and grants, not controllers and insurmountable loans.
