Another Voice: Haiti still needs help rebuilding after earthquake — The Buffalo News


A boy stands at a makeshift camp on the grounds of the Petionville golf course in Port-au-Prince, HaitiBut there is still a very long way to go, particularly in the rural communities that have been virtually untouched by the international outreach efforts. They have no access to clean water, electricity or health care.The daily or weekly updates may have faded from our news media, but the need has not been met yet in Haiti.I have made numerous trips back to the country of my birth to work with the rural population. We have delivered medical services, assisted communities in finding economic development opportunities and provided resources for infrastructure upgrades. My work with the Foundation for Health and Hope in Haiti and NOAH NY has shown me how the dedication of a group of American professionals – doctors, nurses, social workers, teachers, financial planners and students – can make a dramatic impact in the lives of rural Haitians and their small villages. via – The Buffalo News
