Persad-Bissessar: Pray for Haiti, help how ever you can

I am deeply distressed by the human tragedy unfolding in Haiti in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, which devastated entire communities and left more than 900 dead. Many more have suffered severe injuries and tens of thousands are homeless.

While much media attention has been focused on the storm as it passed through communities in the United States, reporters have paid less attention to the human suffering in Haiti, which is one of the poorest countries in the world.
