Haiti is now debt free!

Well... Not quite...

Nearly two-thirds of Haiti's huge debt has been cancelled [Sa Vle di nou pa dwe].

As of April, Haiti owned more than $1.9 billion.

Go ahead... Jump for joy!!!

That's good news for Haiti Cherie!

Millions of dollars, each year, has been freed for the Haitian Government to use to improve Haiti.

Can you imagine what the interest is on $1.2 Billion?

I don't want to know and I am sure President Preval doesn't want to know neither.

We don't have to pay it anymore!!!

Alleluia!

Like the ZIN song says:

Le a rive...
Pou sa change...
Closh la sonnen...
nou pa sa rete gade...

Like the Christian song says:

Mwen pa gen lajan pou-m peye...
Mwen pa gen lajan pou-m peye...
Mwen pa gen lajan pou-m peye...
Det mwen yo peye deja...

Kiyes ki peye-l?
Jezi peye-l...

If you are a concerned Haitian citizen like me I am sure you are happy to hear this great news.

Out of the $1.9 Billion of Haiti's debt, 1.2 Billion has been has been canceled

The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said their boards decided this week to forgive Haiti's obligations to the two organizations
