More on Haiti
Leonel Fernandez, president of the Dominican Republic, talks about the recovery effort in nearby Haiti, where more than 200,000 people died as a result of last year’s earthquake. Fernandez has helped lead the reconstruction process, and hosted a World Summit on the Future of Haiti in Santo Domingo last year. As the one-year anniversary of the earthquake approaches, a report by Oxfam International has criticized world leaders and Haitian officials for the slow pace of the recovery. For example, only five percent of the rubble has been cleared so far.
