Authored by Myriam Paul The question I have been asked since I got back from the CHES Haiti trip is: “Would you do it again?” My answer is: YES, without a doubt!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since that devastating earthquake. Though there have been some advances the big picture still look pretty glum for Haiti. We cannot sum the story better than Stuart Leiderman has below: For Haiti’s ten million and for the Diaspora’s four million, last year’s earthquake was the shock of a lifetime. We pause today to remember, reflect and mourn. In a brief minute, Haitian friends and families from all over the world were brought together in worry for each other’s fate, and in wonder......

I was so sad that to see that many of the organizations that have placed them selves in Haiti to “help” the country are in fact exacerbating the problem! I was surprised to discover that more people became homeless months after the earthquake despite all of the reported housing initiatives that different organizations implemented. Conversations that I had with Haitians and foreigners residing in the country revealed that the organizations have come in offering homeowners renter fees well over the market rate therefore jacking up housing rent. Many people have had to......

What do you think about What Muhammad has to say? I’ve already read opinions that his plan is “fluffy” and he is not to be idolized because he is a Nobel Peace prize winner for developing microfinancing. He does present a compelling argument that I believe is worth thinking about but at the same time, to me, he is just presenting something old with new words. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sh6n9ghLm68&feature=player_embedded...
