Haitians no longer ask each other to stay safe because catastrophic insecurity has transformed leaving their homes into Russian roulette.
Over 1.5 million people are directly affected by the current crisis, according to the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
“What Haiti needs is to break with the failed and foreign-imposed structures of the past and to place—perhaps for the first time—Haitians at the center of their government.” – Mario Joseph, managing director of the Bureau des Avocats Internationaux, Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti (IJDH)
We are thrilled to support IJDH’s Enabling Justice program in Haiti.
