In Septemeber 2008, I traveled 6000 miles to Haiti's Kenscoff mountains. My mission: to care for some of the orphaned and abandoned, the sick, malnourished and premature infants of this beautiful but beleagured Caribbean nation.

Let them eat Ketchup?????

Apparently, the Haitian president has suggested that the price of ketchup and meat be reduced.

The people of Haiti are more pragmatic: they would rather see initiatives to make staples such as rice, beans and oil more affordable.

Attention Mr Preval: the French aristocracy were famed for their lack of sensitivity toward starving peasants. They (the aristocrats, I mean) did not fare well!
