The Dominican Republic does not understand why it has taken so long to help Haiti

The lack of interest and action to address Haiti’s widespread crisis has been brought to the attention of the international community by Roberto Álvarez, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Dominican Republic. At a United Nations Security Council meeting, Álvarez reiterated the urgent need for the organization to take actions that can help resolve the “tragedy” affecting millions of Haitians and the Dominican Republic. He expressed his confusion about why it has taken so long for the body to comply with the aid requested by Haiti, which has not been the case for other countries in crisis.

Álvarez questioned whether countries receive aid based on a differentiating stratification and suggested that responses to help the Haitian people recover to a minimum level of normalcy have been inadequate. He called for measures to stop the security focus and for the international community’s responsibility to protect Haitians when a State cannot. He cited a United Nations report that shows an exponential increase in weapons, bullets, and drugs in Haiti, indicating that a special support force from the National Police is urgently needed to resolve the situation.

Álvarez also claimed that the situation in Port-au-Prince is comparable to an internal armed conflict and that the Haitian State is dissolving. He concluded by urging the Security Council not to ignore the claim.

It seems there is no benefit for the international community to get involved with Haiti. What does it have other than millions of poor undereducated people? The country has nothing of great value or quantity to offer. Undoubtedly, if Haiti had huge oil reserves or acres of lithium, international troops would be bringing order to the streets there now.

This is probably one of the most hateful comments I’ve ever read, but I expect nothing less from people like you who probably claim to be Christian and follow the bible, people like you are a joke just really pathetic. If you hate the people of Haiti just say that and go about your business.

You cannot help or heal a society that doe not wish to be healed. Haiti is a gang-controlled drug-ridden nation-wanna-be. The best thing to do is to seal the border and make them take responsibility for their own demise.

The people of Haiti are fighting for their country daily, just as you love your country the people of Haiti love theirs. Stop the hate! Isn’t the border being sealed with the wall?

Haitians are fighting, If you are following real news from Haiti, they do not want outside involvement
USA, France, and Canada helping Haiti will not bring anything good to the island. Let the Haitians fight!
