It is a very sad situation.

Once you land in Haiti ou se youn mo an vakans.

Pa gen swen medical.

If you are involved in an accident between Gonaives and Port de Paix chances are you are dead because there is no clinic where you can receive first aid help. First black country in the world.What about the road
