Headline: AMERICA / HAITI – Covid 19, a Redemptorist: “Many believe that the disease does not exist in the country and the diaspora no longer sends money”
Port au Prince – “It should be said that the predictions of experts on Haiti, regarding this pandemic, can come true in all their brutality since the country has weak points that seem to condemn it. We trust in the Virgin Mary who protects us. Aware of all this, we, Redemptorist missionaries continue to respect the same protocols issued by the authorities, for this reason we have closed our parish schools. Although the Ministry of Education runs a training program online and through state television, this program is not available for everyone, for various reasons: the first is the lack of electricity in the houses and the lack of Internet in many families. As for the parishes, we celebrate the liturgies behind closed doors or with a dozen parishioners and we broadcast them on social networks and when possible we share what little we have with the poorest and most humble people” : this is the testimony of Father Renold Antoine, Redemptorist Missionary who has been working in Haiti for many years.
