The first Caribbean nation to attain sovereignty, Haiti’s has been marred by corruption, violence, and poverty. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. The country continues to be plagued by issues of personal security, economic decline, and questionable governing.
COVID COUNTRY UPDATE
Haiti reported its first coronavirus cases in late March. In an effort to minimize the spread of the virus, the land border with the Dominican Republic has been closed and flights from several countries are not allowed to enter.

Our prayers for this country include physical safety and that the precautions taken will minimize the spread of the virus in Haiti.
