WOW... Sean Penn's Haiti Earthquake Camp is No More?


After the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Haiti's only golf course, the Petionville Club, became a large relief camp run by Hollywood movie star Sean Penn... I just found out that this camp is NO MORE... A big sign that things are getting back to normal in Haiti... Don't you think?

Sean Penn's humanitarian group, J/P Haitian Relief Organization, said last week that there were several dozen people still in the settlement and there were expected to leave by Friday, 24 Jan, 2014.

The Associated Press reports...

"The nine-hole course swelled to an estimated 60,000 people but became famous largely because Penn assumed responsibility for the settlement as he founded the J/P Haitian Relief Organization to help people return to their old neighborhoods."

For better or worse, I guess this means "Mission Accomplished" for Sean Penn and his organization... I mean, the man didn't come to Haiti to turn every camp dweller into middle class citizens... Caring for them and getting them out of their homeless living condition, to me, is a job well done.

What do you think about that?

Joy Just the fact that he was there all this time shows that Penn was more sincere than a lot of governments and pre-established NGOs.
