Today, the situation in Haiti could not be more dire. Paramilitaries continue to terrorize the population. Over 5 million Haitians, including 2.5 million children, are experiencing food insecurity in a country of 12 million. And now, the UN has authorized an invasion force to prop up the unelected, repressive government.
As always, Haitians continue to persevere in the face of these daunting challenges. One shining example is the University of the Dr. Aristide Foundation (UNIFA) which now has over 5000 students and has recently opened a new teaching hospital, so desperately needed in Haiti. Come hear Mme. Aristide discuss this remarkable work amidst the deepening crisis in Haiti.
