How did Haiti, once called the “Jewel of the Antilles,” arrive at its present troubles? Like many African nations, Haiti is abundant in natural resources. Yet, in both places, many people live on less than a dollar a day. Both have had massive foreign assistance and investments, yet both remain impoverished. Corruption, disease and poverty still dominate this island nation. These are only symptoms of the true problem, however–they are the consequences of wrong beliefs. Can Haiti be freed from the mental stronghold of voodoo and reach her God-given potential? Yes. But only on a new foundation.
