Haiti by Christopher Kuehl

Photographer: Christopher Kuehl

Filmed in Haiti

I have recently just returned from Haiti.  It was an extremely difficult place to be.  What is most surprising is that the poverty this country is facing is in some ways more intense than many of the places in Africa I have traveled.  It is the poorest country in the western hemisphere and what shocks me most is how close to America it is.  It is unbelievable to me that aid cannot reach this country in a quicker fashion.  Like most 3rd world countries it is struggling with HIV, poverty, illiteracy, crime, food shortages and corrupt government. -C.Kuehl
