This week marks the third anniversary of the appalling earthquake in Haiti. I have written about this for the Catholic Herald and Ekklesia (http://www.ekklesia.co.uk/node/17774), and have witnessed myself the struggle to rebuild and recover.
It is three years since the devastating Haiti earthquake. Pascale Palmer from the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development looks at the task of rebuilding supported by CAFOD and others, and the immense challenges faced by the people of the country. She also draws attention to a campaign for changes in the global food system that could help prevent food insecurity in countries like Haiti.
Launched on 10 November 2012, CAFOD's year-long 'Hungry for Change' campaign will use key moments, such as the UK’s hosting of the G8 in May 2013, to highlight the issues at stake in the struggle against hunger call for further support. But what are those issues?
