Please read the following message from Arlene Flaherty, OP, Director of JPIC, in case you missed her recent e-mail:
Dear Sisters, Associates and Staff,
Over the past several days violence has erupted in Haiti because of the fragile economic situation. Rising inflation, falling currency, and scarcity of fuel has brought thousands of Haitians to the streets. Some are calling for the resignation of their Prime Minister Jovenal Moise if the situation does not improve.
I spoke with Brian Stevens of Beyond Borders this morning who reported that the violence appears to be restricted to the mainland and Lagonav, where we are collaborating, appears not to be impacted at this time.
Please pray for a peaceful resolution to the issues which have led to this crisis in Haiti and for the safety of all people living there.
