Special Report: Haiti

Ascending into chaos

Gary Fallesen 0 41

Haiti is synonymous with crisis. Lawlessness (kidnapping, carjacking, armed robbery, gang violence), a dysfunctional government, civil unrest, fuel and food shortages, and rampant COVID-19 already had Haiti tagged “Level 4: Do Not Travel” for outsiders and was a hellhole for its population of 11-million-plus. Chaos would be a step up in Haiti. But our work goes on.

Mission Moments: Haiti

A loo with a view

Gary Fallesen 0 268

Toilet, water closet, baño, loo, squatty, privy, latrine. Everyone needs a place to “go,” and too often in the mountains of Haiti that place is wherever you happen to be when so moved. Imagine schools in four villages with more than 400 students and no bathroom facilities. Messy. Not any more, thanks to latrines built by C4C's New Generation.
