Help Haiti – Donations, Relief Aid Are Key Lifelines for Poorest Country in the Western Hemisphere

Not only one of the poorest countries in the world, Haiti seems to be one of the unluckiest too. The two tend to go hand-in-hand. Haiti experienced one of its worst hurricane seasons ever in 2008 when four tropical storms – Fay, Gustav, Hanna, and Ike – caused more than $1 billion in damage.

Do we need anarchy to build a better future?
