Haitians Speak About Their Country

Though faced with widespread unemployment and poverty, Haitians remain strong, resilient, and hopeful for the future. We asked Haitians from the town of Milot to talk to us about Haiti’s greatest strengths, their hopes for the future, and what Haitians can teach the rest of the world.

Milot, Haiti is is a rural town in north Haiti with many tourist attractions such as the Citadel, which is the largest fortress in the Western Hemisphere, the ruins of Sans Souci Palace, and Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church. Milot is also home to Hôpital Sacré Coeur, the largest hospital and biggest employer in northern Haiti.
