Caritas official sees signs of hope in Haiti

Catholic World News - January 20, 2011

The emergency response coordinator for Caritas Internationalis, the consortium of Catholic relief and development agencies, sees signs of hope for the impoverished nation. Haitians desire “to put 2010 behind them and … to look forward, rather than looking backward, says Dolores Bachmann. “There’s also a very, very strong sense that people generally want something very different to the kind of society they had prior to the earthquake.”

“They want to rebuild communities,” she adds. “They want to be in charge of their own destiny.”
