Rebuilding Haiti, One Commune at a Time: Experience from Haitian People in Zabriko and Esewhere

Mark Schuller

As Hurricane Matthew continued onto the U.S., the waters receded in Haiti, and it became apparent that the damage in Haiti was immense.

Just like many people who either are Haitian or work in Haiti, I’ve been asked by people who want to help for recommendations. Unfortunately, the answer isn’t simple, because of the logistical challenges and also the isolation of many of the most impacted areas, because of the hyper-centralization.

Encouraging to hear the hopefulness of local leaders. I need to check back in with an NGO that wrote, while Matthew raged, that they were already working with 3000 families. This is Heifer International, which works by providing livestock to families. I'd be glad for advice from someone close to the actual area. Unfortunately, it is easiest to deal with US NGOs.
