Begging in Haiti

Haitian beggars are becoming more creative these days, they want more money

Begging in Haiti has taken a new form... Normally, a poor street beggar will ask you for HTG $5 gourdes, but these new smart beggars are clean cut, well dressed, they ride on motorcycles and they ask you for GAS money...

In Haiti, Begging has a new professional touch - Shocking the way people ask you for money

In Haiti, Begging has a new Professional touch... True story -- One late afternoon, a man was passing by on motorcycle in the small Haitian city where I live, he pulled over next to me and asked me: "Pardon me, Sir, you don't know me but I need your help. I have an emergency and I need get somewhere in a hurry, can you by any chance give me 2 gallons of gasoline?"
