Somerville Officials Issue Statement on Haiti EarthquakeWednesday, August 18, 2021
The depths of the suffering borne by the people of Haiti in recent decades -- whether hunger, disease, natural disaster, or economic crisis – seems fathomless. But the gauntlet of hardship faced by this island nation has not extinguished the spirit of its people. Even after Saturday’s earthquake, Monday’s tropical storm, the ravages of COVID-19, and the recent assassination of President Moïse, Haitians continue to strive to help one another. They are determined, as we should be too.
