Dominican Soldiers - the Armed Forces of Dominican Republic have about 44,000 active-duty personnel and they have work to do compared to Haiti

Dominican Soldiers - the Armed Forces of Dominican Republic have about 44,000 active-duty personnel and they have work to do compared to Haiti

Being a soldier in the Dominican Republic does not necessarily mean that you're trained all day and get ready for war. 60 percent of the active duty personnel of the Dominican armed forces are used to guard non-military sites.

The duties oh Dominican Soldier, among other things, include guarding the border, guarding certain strategic points on the main roads and arteries, guarding the forests of the Dominican Republic, guarding the National Banks and gobernment and facilities. And also guarding high-ranking officials.

With all the different things that the Dominican military is used for, the police has more time to do police work.

Compare that to Haiti where the police does pretty much everything including serving as bodyguards for wives and girlfriends Haitian politicians.

Haitian Voodoo - Vodou in Haiti, a vodouisant making her request to the Lwa

Inside the rituals of Haiti's 'Vodou' faith: Powerful photographs capture priestesses as they invoke spirits and perform sacrifices

Several times a day, light casts down from an opening at the highest point of the grotto ceiling, during these times, many Vodouisants can be found making their requests to the Loa/Iwa. It was that same light that the Taino Indians in that region centered many of their rituals

Deforestation in Haiti: A horse loaded with charcoal going to market

Here is one of the main causes of deforestation in Haiti: Look at this picture of a horse loaded with charcoal from the countryside going to market.

By the end of the day, these 3 bags of charcoal will make it to a Haitian kitchen. by the end of the week it's gone... Burned to ashes.

Charcoal is Haiti's chief source of fuel and the #1 cause for deforestation and environmental disasters.

As long as Haitians continue to use charcoal for cooking deforestation will continue.
