Haiti: Petion-Ville Market Burnt Down

On Jan.9, HaitiXchange wrote (Fr): “The market in Pétionville went up in flames this morning. It was in horror that we watched all of our merchandise go up in smoke. The merchants complained, since their means of making a living, and their very survival, the education of their 10 and 20 year old children, and their hard work turned into dust… While waiting for repairs to be made to the Petionville market and the eventual return of security to Haiti, we will remain trustful that the established authorities will shed some light on this drama.” The site posts photos.
