A visit in Citron: thier needs
Mar 13, 2012


A visit at Citron one year after the earthquake on January 12, 2010.


I wonder how they do every day to get down then to get up climb cross a river to get up an other montain then to arrive to they camped since after the earthquake.

What I realize, in spite of that kind of life they are facing every single day, I wonder where they find that energy and with an enthusiasm to welcome me, also the smile on their face.

After having had a conversation at the same time recorded the short video with one member of the Community counsel, I realized that they do not ask and do not waiting from other to do everything fo them cause they already have a structure and well organized to continue in their simple life contrairement to aother areas.

The infrastructures that they need to well functioned in their area it’s everything that a are needs to fonction,

They need:

1) Electricity infrastructure, because they when it’s 5pm all children are in bed because it’s not safe to walk without the light procured the Sun. if they can have a Solar light or panel electric it will be very helpful for the children to have a chance for story telling at night.

2) Transportation infrastructure, if one of them get very sick if it’s rain I am pretty sure that person will died before it get the an hospital, because there is a ravine cross to the other side. Children there do no have bicycle because no spice to ride it.

3) Cultural, sport and recreational infrastructure, a place where they can play, organise competition will give them opportunity to occupy their mind, busy thinking about good things, that they have to do. Such as a museum, to show them what Haiti looked like long time ago, a library will not be to much asking for the children to increase their vocabulary.

4) Social infrastructure, they need to have a health center, for the first aids when a case of cholera is declared. They don’t need to go to Petion- ville to treat flu or a fever. A Technical purify water will prevent them against cholera, they drink direclty water come from the robinet they do not have aquatabe or clhor to purify water. Educationally, another elementary school will be important; they do not have secondary schools yet. University and college?

A visit at Citron one year 11 months and 7 days after the disaster, it helps me to understand how things go if there is any progress, since after my last visit 3 days after the earthquake of January 12, 2010.

This December 07, at 9 am Gerda Gedeon one of our partners who live there came to meet me, to show me the way, because I did not want to get lost and been attacked again like the last time in my way to Champ Mars.

Do not wait to honor the work they do .. May 31, 2010

Do not wait to honor the work they do ...

Soon it will be two years since I worked with PINP and for PINP. In fact, who are those people of PINP? One could say that is US. This word US, that could be translated by the word family. Indeed they say it is a real team like a family ...

In a team of Foot, each in its role, the attacker plays the role of attack. The defender, and center front in a team has their role, and they are just as important as the goal keeper. It's like this family we are in PINP. We each have a specific role, and spend some time to do other things. In Haiti we usually wait until after their death to honor and talk about the work of our writers, poets, painters, and sculptors. Now, when we look at how major countries honor their artists, we do not wait until their death. The government has decided do honor them while they are still alive.

In the same way it cannot wait to honor the great work that volunteers abroad do, for a better tomorrow for the survival of the Haitian population. Not forgetting to mention that they leave their family, their friends, and their country, in order to rescue people who suffer and live in poverty and extreme poverty. Without knowing those who live in a country where everything is strange, and especially despite all the evil that is said of Haiti, they decided to come anyway.

Especially in Cite Soleil, the center of danger. After a hard day passes listening to the grievances and dreams of these children and adults, under an unparalleled hot tropical sun, they returned tired, and you can see the fatigue and dust on their faces and the apple of their eyes. Without even realizing, they do not know how much life they came to save. Simply having lent ears to these people for taking the time to listen and be heard. They are everywhere, in Cite Soleil, Jalouzie, Citron, Delmas 75, Delmas 75 Tent city, Champ de Mars, everywhere, and need to be heard.

You, the volunteers, you can never know and understand the importance and greatness of the work you do. In this sense, those who came made it by giving a hand, gave their time to this worthy cause, a better world, less hunger and children in slavery. You have shown courage and dedication to help them:

Shadia Duery
Jenniffer Johnson
Holli Griffiths and Heather
Allison Meyer
And the other volunteers, without even realizing it is allowed the volunteers, the pioneer Geoff Bederson and without forgetting Laura. They all came together for a
common cause. You who are still a little undecided to take part in this family, People In Need Partnership.

Do not remain indifferent, because the harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few.

Thank you

Myriam

Hello Midielande,
Well, PINP has apparently ceased operations and it looks as though our partnership is over. If by some chance the organization starts up again, maybe they will contact me to let me know.

My friend, I want you to know that I did my best to support you in the two years in which we were partners - and it was my pleasure to be your PINP partner. Although I know that my donations were small, as compared to your needs due to a difficult life, I was happy to contribute. It's my hope that my contributions helped you.

Always know that I am your friend and that I will always be proud of you! smile

David

Dear Bordron,

I hope this letter finds you well. I am sad to not hear from you because I am not sure what that means and I miss your letters.

Please let me know who to contact at People In Need to get funds to you. I tried to contact Myriam, but I didn't receive a response.

Is there a way I can send you mail directly? Is the mail system safe in Haiti?

Love, Shawna

Hi Lise,
How have you been? I'm sorry that you don't have what you need to go to school. For some reason my money isn't going through after trying multiple times. I'm not sure what the problem is. I'm sorry to hear that your grand father died. My husband is doing well. We do not have a baby yet. My twin sister and niece moved in with my husband and I so I've been busy helping to take care of the baby. My husband and I moved into a little house so that there will be enough room for all of us. There have been a lot of changes. Are you still going to the mini center? Are you getting enough food and water?
Love, Jodi and Nate
