A letter to the President
The following letter was sent on behalf of Mercy Focus on Haiti to President Trump. 
 

Mr. President,

I don’t know where you get your information about Haiti, but I find your characterization appalling.

My interaction with the Haitian people over the past four years has taught me they are some of the most courageous, creative, compassionate, resilient and generous people on this planet.  They meet the challenges of life with strength and dignity: they treat one another with respect and graciousness.  I am honored to call them friends and colleagues.

Gros Morne, Haiti is located in the Northwestern portion of the Artibonite Valley.
