Poverty in Haiti
After this year’s earth quake in Haiti and all the news coverage that I saw earlier in the year, I felt the need to try to imagine or comprehend the level of poverty in Haiti. I am not certain how much help does Haiti receives from other countries but would like to do some research. I would also like to know if countries that are well off do they empower third world countries. I don’t believe there is democracy for humanities in third world countries. I was totally devastated when the earth quake stroke Haiti.
I plan on researching poverty after the earth quake in Haiti and I plan to find out if they receive help from other countries. If Haiti receives help, what type of help and how is it disbursed? In addition to the help, do they receive advice from counties who are well off financially? I would like to use information from CNN and PBS. In addition I would like to interview my Haitian friend Yvonne.
I work in Corporate America and have been in the finance industry for a while and have seen so much injustice that it is a topic like this that truly identifies my heart for humanity. My heart may be small in size but it is gigantic when it for a cause of this magnitude. I say it all the time that I do not belong in Corporate America. My heart tells me that I should be dedicating my heart and soul to causes like this.
In class we have had several discussions regarding humanities and I feel that it is very important for everyone in our world to work together in finding solutions for problems like poverty here in the US and as well as in third world countries. How can our society prosper without leaving behind the less fortunate?
