U.S. Department of State’s “DipNote”: Haiti Still Needs Our Help
Thomas Adams, the State Department’s Haiti special coordinator, marks the 5th anniversary of the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti on January 12, 2010. He writes, “Haiti still needs our help. We can do justice to those lost and to all that has been achieved by taking a closer look at Haiti and seeing not only its challenges but also its potential. … A priority of the United States in the years to come is helping Haiti to leverage these advantages and to sustain our commitment to helping Haitians achieve stability and development” (1/9).
