Quotes

"One could think that still exists two or three who know what it means to be minister. We can support such a measure of the Ministry of National Education, find another such hasty or slightly risky, but we feel, once will not hurt that within this government, that this ministry is headed and that one think about it. After all, nothing is wrong in absolute terms, and it must be recognized that among the leaders of this country, some seem to be in their place. Is it necessary to congratulate them ? (In this slump, their actions deserve to be commended.) Or pity them? (Because they enter history in bad company ?)"
"The main objective of the project was to provide safe and durable school infrastructure that will allow 8,000 children, who could not attend school in the wake of the destruction of their schools, to return to a conducive school environment and continue their education" he added
"I would like the country to move forward, to forget Aristide," he said.  "They went after him when I was a kid. I remember hiding under my bed. I could see people stealing and burning cars, shooting guns.  They were cutting heads off, burning people everywhere. And I don’t want to live through that again."
"We the members of the Fedayodeh-RD (Federation of Haitian Associations and Organizations in Dominican Republic) reiterate that we are peace loving friends of the Dominican people, from whom we’ve received great examples of solidarity and of brotherhood" they said in a statement
