1500 Haitians Soon To Be Homeless In The Bahamas

An estimated 1,500 Haitians will soon be homeless in the Bahamas and more than 2,000 Haitian families is are awaiting their fate.

Haiti Bahamas

For more than 30 years, there has been a Haitian community on Abaco Island in the Bahamas in an area known as Pigeon Pea. Soon, this community will cease to exist because eviction notices were issued to all 1,500 Haitians in that area.

Basically, every Haitian home, church, and business will be gone!

Right next to Pigeon Pea is another Haitian settlement called "The Mud." It is home to more than 2000 Haitian families but it was built on state land.

Unfortunately, Haitian residents of "The Mud" may soon be evicted as well.

What will be the fate of these thousands of Haitians living in the Bahamas? God only knows!

This is one more reason why we really need to rebuild Haiti once and for all.

Perhaps all these desperate families who find themselves migrating and being humiliated in other parts of the world will be able to find shelter on the promised land.

Do you have any family in the Bahamas?

Do you live in the Bahamas and are you affected by this eviction notice?

Perhaps you have more information that you can share with us?

I live in the Bahamas and I still have family there and honestly I think that evicting those families is the best thing that can be done for them. The lack of running water, indoor plumbing, the lack of proper electrical wiring and other facilities makes it dangerous for the families themselves.

Drugs and prostitution as well as other gang activities are clearly visible and active.

They are squatters, when one house catches on fire it becomes a disaster and because of how the village is structured makes it difficult for the fire trucks to get in. When in rome do as the romans do, we need to learn to integrate and not segregate
