KREYOL: Haiti - Mezanmi... PEYI a gen GRANGOU wi... e sanble bagay yo pwal pi rèd nan jou k ap vini la yo... Kisa ou panse de sa???

In a recent article by Reuters, it was revealed that millions of people in Haiti face food insecurity including 1.5 million who do not know what or when their next meal will be.

Haitians farmers rely on the rainy season to plant their crops, when there's no rain, there's no crop... The worse part of this is the fact that starving Haitians on the countryside resort to cutting down trees for charcoal to earn a living in an already deforested Haiti.

What do you think about that?

Haiti should build houses with refrigerators, gas or electric ovens to stop cutting trees for charcoal, and modern bathrooms for sales on a mortgage plan. Haiti should build affordable apartment buildings for rebt in every department to decongestion Port au Prince.

Haiti should plant more bananas, beans, maniocs, yams, all types of fruits and vegetables, like breadfruits, corns, rice, lemons, mangos, soursoaps, watermelons, oranges, grapefruits, eggplants, coconuts, coffee, cocoa, peanuts, cashew nuts, to export to the USA and Canada and everywhere Haitians are living.

Everybody like the Haitian mangos, Haiti sould export all types of mangos, not only the mango francis.
