Messages To Haiti

Hi, my name is Aliyah. I’m 15 years old, and I live in Little Rock, Arkansas here in the US, Koman ou Ye? N’boute!, I hope! My regret is to hear about everything that is going on! The people in my country are doing the best they can to help out! Here at my school we are doing a big talent show and the money raised will all go to Haiti.

Pa Kounye, but I will still be doing a fundraiser at my church and sending more money to your home. I hope when you receive this you will respond. One more thing, I am in the ninth grade, maybe we are close to the same age. (Much Love!)

Hello, my name is Antyonne and I just want to say how sorry I am about what happened. I live in the USA in Arkansas. My favorite musician is Wyclef Jean and I know he is Haitian, and he sings about going from a hut to a mansion. He proves that no matter where you come from you can achieve anything. I know the earthquake really scared you, but as a 14 year old I am here to say to keep your heads up because God has great plans for you, he will grant Haiti great memories. So to you and your family and friends good luck and you guys are always in my prayers.

Dear Haitian children,
Bonjour Haiti! Koman ou ye? Well I am worried about you because of the earthquake. I was wondering tout barry anfum? How was before the earthquake? Do you have any family in the USA? I saw the damage on TV. Are all your people still alive? I hope you avoided being hurt by the collapsed buildings, and I hope it gets better!!!

Hola my name is Raheem and I watched the earthquake results and you have been on my mind ever since. We are raising money for you at my school and hope you get all you need to rebuild your homes and workplaces. This earthquake made people cry here!
