Haitian homeless feel abandoned years after quake | News24:  ""We have been abandoned by the authorities. January 12 will be the anniversary of three years of suffering, misery and contempt ..."

January 12, 2013 will mark three years of misery, tragedy, and homelessness for 358,000 people in rough tent cities and camps around Port au Prince. During those three years refugee Haitians have been exposed to "crime wave, a cholera outbreak and - from time to time - hurricanes." Haitians wonder when there will be relief for them.
" ... The 2010 disaster triggered a global outpouring of sympathetic rhetoric and pledges of aid for the already impoverished Caribbean nation, but residents and aid agencies complain that rebuilding and re-development has been too slow. (SAPA. 2013-01-11 12:30. HERE) ... "
"We are without support," complained Wisly Decimus, a former teacher who has given up trying to run classes in a tent in the Marassa camp, just outside the capital, where 5,000 people cling to life beside a dangerous river.

"We have been abandoned by the authorities. January 12 will be the anniversary of three years of suffering, misery and contempt," he spat.

Three years ago on January 13th, 2010 this story made the news:
" ... Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who previously traveled to Haiti to lend their star power to musician Wyclef Jean’s Yele Haiti Foundation, said they were “devastated” by the tragic news.

“We are devastated by the news from Haiti,” the duo said in a statement to The Agence France-Presse. “We will work closely with our good friend Wyclef Jean to support the humanitarian efforts on the island and help those who have been injured and left without homes and shelter.”(by NBC Universal, Jan 13, 2010. HERE) ... "

For now the refugees get a wreath and rhetoric:
" ... In the late morning, Clinton, the U.N. special envoy to Haiti, joined Martelly and Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe in placing a wreath at a mass burial site north of the capital of Port-au-Prince. None of the three spoke at the event.

Clinton expressed hope about Haiti's future in brief comments to reporters after the ceremony.

"I think that you will see, particularly in the economic sphere, a lot more in the coming year, where Haiti is projected to have the highest growth rate in the Caribbean," he said. "Well, we hope to speed up some of the infrastructure. We have to repair the agriculture and ... build a lot more houses. We've got to get those people out of those tents."

Clinton, Martelly and Lamothe met privately in the afternoon. (TRENTON DANIEL
ASSOCIATED PRESS. Saturday, 01.12.13. HERE) ..."
Side note: " ... Foreign diplomats and Czech supermodel Petra Nemcova, earlier named by Martelly as one of Haiti's goodwill ambassadors, were also there. ... "

And, last but not least, Sean Penn has worked at organizing relief for Haiti:
" ... Sean Penn has spent the last two years helping the relief effort in Haiti, and he's got little time for those who have long abandoned the country.

"It's not only celebrities who went for a day," Penn said at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday when asked about the lack of support for the Haitian relief effort. "It's the whole f--king world. It's all of you."

Following the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti in January of 2010, Penn headed to the country and helped set up J/P Haitian Relief Organization, an aid group that rebuilt homes, schools and hospitals. For his efforts, Penn was awarded with the 2012 Peace Summit Award by the Nobel Peace Prize laureates, and also became an ambassador-at-large for the country.

"He was not a drive-by celebrity," former President Bill Clinton said recently. "He went into those camps and he was actually solving their water problems, solving their sanitation problems." (Christopher Rosen. Posted: 05/18/2012 1:08 pm Updated: 05/18/2012 1:44 pm. HERE) ... "
