Posted – July 11, 2018 – I’ve received several phone calls and emails this week regarding the desperate situation in Haiti. Starting with the government’s announcement of fuel price increases (by 40-50%) on Friday, the country has been racked by violence, looting and riots. The government temporarily rescinded price hikes this weekend, but now there are calls for President Moïse to step down. This creates uncertainty and an environment in which random violence can flare up anywhere.
Thankfully, we currently have no visitors in country. Our children and the staff are safe within our compound, now surrounded by a 14-foot wall (new addition this Spring!). We’ve topped off fuel, water and supplies. Operations continue.
Although both the US and Canadian Embassies are currently recommending NO TRAVEL, it is too early for those traveling this Fall and Winter to make a final decision. Please watch the US State Dept. Travel site or the similar Canadian site for emerging details. Talk with us prior to making your final decision.
