Update from Haiti by Mission Co-Worker Cindy Corell

In Haiti, farmers and civil society are demanding social reforms in response to decades-long corruption. Immense frustration at the poor conditions in which Haitians are living has lit a fire in the streets. Cindy Corell, a mission co-worker sponsored by Presbytery of the James, reports on the events that led to the uprising in an article published by the Presbyterian Mission Agency. She also shares actions being taken by FONDAMA (Hands Together Foundation of Haiti), a branch of the Joining Hands network organization with which she works, to eliminate root causes of the country’s dire poverty.
