For Haiti's recovery to be effective and lasting, Haitians must be the main actors. They must have a voice in how aid money is spent in their country and be the principal agents of the work being done. Currently, the mechanism for that is the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC) -- a group dedicated to creating a plan to best make use of the current influx of aid.
Please join me in signing Partners In Health's open letter calling for Haitians to be the main actors in Haiti's recovery and in the coordination of foreign aid.
Thank you for your solidarity.
