Solidarity Haiti

Haïti après le séismeAAt the suggestion of Jean-Claude Cardinal Turcotte, the journalist Sophie Brouillet of Mediapaul accompanied a delegation formed by the Canadian Major Superiors of Religious Communities, which went to Haiti at the end of May 2011, to meet with members of the Haitian Religious Conference.

This meeting, under the banner of solidarity, was drafted to allow a better understanding of the country's reality and of its inhabitants, to take part in the assistance and reconstruction efforts stemming from the solutions offered to the emergency situation by each religious congregation, to analyse the country's Church and religious reality and finally to reflect on the prophetic mission of consecrated life in the context of a great distress situation.

The project was coordinated by Sister Kesta Occident, c.s.c., and by Sister Pierrette Bertrand OFSJ, in collaboration with the Haitian Religious Conference. The delegates were greeted and housed by various religious congregations.

It is with enthusiasm that Sophie Brouillet had accepted to go to Haiti. Her interviews and journalistic reports have already been posted on our website. We thought of making them once again available, on the occasion of the second anniversary of the natural disaster that has so brutally devastated that country.
