It has been a very busy week at school for me. Not as much time to blog as I would have hoped, but I wanted to provide everyone with some things to think about. Below are a collection of articles related to Haiti. I do not endorse all of the ideas they put forth but I think they are useful for expanding our ideas on what rebuilding this country will really take.
Please read and feel free to let us know what you think. (A big thank you to my bosses wife, Ruth, who has been very dilligent in sharing articles that she had read)
This article discusses the death toll and gives some insight into the way the Haitian government works.
I never thought I would link to Huffington Post (my Fox News-watching-father is probably choking on his dinner right now) but they do discuss the lack of food production here in Haiti. Also, Mr. Jean-Baptist is a QCS parent.
This is my favorite article. And the only one I will editorialize about. It is vital that money be spent locally.
On roughly the same topic, this article outlines the battle between the large NGO's and the smaller aid organizations.
The Comfort, should it stay or should it go?
Those are just some of the things we are reading in Haiti.
Blessings and Peace
