In light of today’s Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearing “HAITI RECONSTRUCTION: SMART PLANNING MOVING FORWARD”, the President of American Jewish World Service, Ruth Messinger had the following to say:
"While I am pleased that this important hearing is being held and believe that the witnesses called have important information to share with Congress, I am disappointed that the witness list is devoid of Haitian voices. Haiti's reconstruction should be led by Haitians.”
