Haitians roam the city of Port Au Prince, they sleep in the streets. Houses are broken, whole families vanished within a matter of seconds. The rainy season is coming, a race against time. How will Haiti fix itself, how will the world answer to a country in such dire need, a country, already in need.
In the 1980's an influx of cheap subsidized rice and other commodities flooded into Haiti, from the USA and various western nations, and together with the black market industry, virtually stamped out the country's agricultural industry. Many Haitians flocked to Port Au Prince searching for opportunity, swelling the confines of the city. After having lost most everything many Haitians are returning to the countryside, packing into relatives houses, small, one room habitations with no electricity or running water, sometimes 30 people to one house. For the moment there is food, the land is fertile but how will this sustain with no support from the international community.
The international community has a responsibility to help rebuild a nation, yet it must rebuild for the future. There is an opportunity to right the wrongs of the past, and start a new chapter in the tumultuous history books of a nation born from the insatiable hunger for freedom and independence.
