By Anthony VazquezAssociated PressAssociated PressHaiti’s haiti population has declined by about one-third in the last 40 years, but the country’s population has continued to swell.
Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide is set to leave office in January, a year after he led the nation through the worst economic crisis in decades.
With more than a third of its population now living below the poverty line, the country is struggling to stabilize itself.
The country is facing a shortage of water, sanitation and basic services.
Housing is a major challenge, with many Haitians living in tents or on the streets.
And with many people unable to pay for basic necessities, many are turning to the black market to get by.
This is where the Haitian embassy in Paris came in.
“We’re trying to put a dent in this problem,” said Jean-Francois Vazques, a spokesman for the French mission.
In the United States, the Haitian ambassador to the U.S. was also on the ground in Haiti.
I think that in a few months’ time, Haiti’s going to be in a better place,” Vazque said.
He also said he expects the Haitian government to take a more active role in its reconstruction efforts, which have been plagued by corruption.”
Haitia needs more help.
It needs a lot more help,” he said.
Hamas and other militant groups have been waging war against the Haitian state since the 2011 earthquake that killed more than 11,000 people and displaced millions.
There is widespread discontent with the Haitian political establishment, with several lawmakers recently calling for Aristide’s resignation.
Aristide, who is the son of former President Jean Bertrand Aristides, has said that his father was killed during the revolution.
