"If misery were to end in Haiti, their lives would be over, they themselves will be miserable."

"So now it is up to us to chose between those who live of the misery of others, because some foreigners come here, as an example, they build orphanages. We don't have any problem with that but why don't we seek foreign tourists instead who come here to spend their money and with the money they spend we can make the tourism industry blossom for example."

What do you think about what the president said?

I am not doubting mr Martelly pronouncement ; however, he has not given us any any logic explanations as to why some people live copiously at the expense of the poor.
I am certain that the foreigners who come to Haiti and operate orphanages cannot make a profit unless they are engaged in human trafficking.

Mr Martelly advancement is very much
