The Haitian-American Chamber Of Commerce of Florida
Communities and families are being affected by the recent riots in Haiti
July 10, 2018
The Haitian American Chamber of Commerce of Florida (HACCOF) extends its sympathies to all individuals, families, and entities affected by the riots in Haiti over the last week-end. As individuals, we are all saddened by the loss of life and property and extend our support to all the parties affected by the recent unfortunate events. As a Chamber of Commerce, we are very concerned about the impact of the property damage on Haiti’s economy. Haiti has had to rebuild several times in recent years following a major earthquake and hurricane. It is incumbent upon all sectors of the country to acknowledge that the cost of rebuilding is shared by the entire population and that the image of riots and destruction both on the national and international stage discourages job-creating investment that Haiti sorely needs.
