  • A Hurting but Hopeful Heart For Haiti | Jeanette Arsenault - Singer & Songwriter, Ontario, Canada
    her I am quite appalled at the conditions I witness and with how many children there are because it means they are not in school School costs money so a lot of families cannot afford it The total cost per student per year is 32 50 USD Imagine 3 250 would send 100 of those children to school per year a pittance We then head over to the school I meet the director who takes me into each of the classrooms They start at kindergarten go all the way up to high school It s all very clean the children are all in uniforms they allow me to take photos of every class It is part of a church complex the Director is a pastor so I take a photo of that too They call me le blanc the white one We head back to the house prepare to leave but Brutus car won t start so people start to push Problem is he is backing up onto a very busy highway there is no traffic limit in Haiti as far as I can tell They go screaming by at top speed so this driveway is just around a bend and it s a miracle they manage to back it across 2 lanes out of the way It s supposed to be a 4 hour drive home But it turns into 7 hours on the road A huge truck blocks both ways as it is stretched sideways across the road Come to find out that the driver did it deliberately and walked away with the keys to protest not being paid We wait 1 5 hours before we can get around it And it was the most incredible chaotic situation I had ever seen in my life There were lots of people around lots of police too but no one directing traffic so everybody was just gunning it in both directions to get around the truck And to do so the cars had to go on a slight angle Some tried to drive down the ravine back up but couldn t make it because of everyone else in both directions up on the road trying to get by on the road We finally get back on our way and when we get to Port au Prince traffic is at a standstill so it takes us 1 5 hours to get across the city It s mayhem in that city People everywhere drivers and people crisscrossing barely getting by each other noise smells rubble garbage lean to s tent cities dust women with baskets on their heads market sellers When we got back to the house there was a Christian gathering going on maybe 30 people out on the patio It takes place every Thursday 4 6 The singing was fabulous We had potato fries fried banana fish for supper We were quite tired so we said goodnight around 8 00 March 18 2011 Slept till 5AM from 9 30 Woke up to the sounds of guess yup roosters dogs Worked on my journal then had breakfast which was a cooked plantain and a potato Took a taxi with Julie Rosena to P au Prince market LONG ride traffic congestion as usual found nothing then another taxi to another section found some souvenirs Then lonnnnnnnnng taxi ride home to meet with my driver to take me to BPW luncheon took over an hour to get there so I basically spent most of my day in a vehicle Need to tell this quick story as I was leaving my host s house to get into the car to take me to the luncheon the family stopped me They called one of the BPW ladies and asked her to describe the driver the vehicle before they would let me go When I got to the luncheon they called to make sure I had arrived When I left I had to call the family to say I was returning when I got back to my host s house I had to call BPW to let them know I was safe sound Quite the security system Met the MOST extraordinary women from the Business Professional Women Haiti branch They invited me to lunch at a beautiful restaurant atop a cliff called la Reserve It was like being in a little haven far from the noise dust hustle bustle of the city that never stops At the luncheon we talked about the plight of Haiti the overwhelming challenge of where to start to rebuild their country they told me their personal stories during the earthquake of January 12 2010 We spoke about the political situation the upcoming election the need for women to be in the higher echelons of government the desperate situation of the poor the young girls being violated the need for education honest government officials how Haiti was ruined over the years by foreign governments These women are smart compassionate tireless dauntless courageous fearless and need to be heard We all agreed that Haiti needs women to help make the necessary changes but how that proves to be an uphill battle Other women have been in positions of power and one in particular turned 180 degrees and left these women baffled with the political choices she made I gather it could be described as a turncoat though I did not get the full story of what she had done Interesting to note about the markets the clothes and the shoes seem to be 2 nd hand Makes me wonder if they are items that have been donated from other countries which the Haitians in turn sell Who can blame them there are no jobs so they have to be creative and find any way they can to feed their families Did some more singing dancing bonding with the family with some of the neighbours I met Yolette Maria Jules teacher Had a long conversation with Maria about Haiti how the hope is in
