  1. Is there is anything UK based journalists can do to help?

    • Yes, they can send needed equipment, and money for tents. Details to follow shortly.

    • Lee,
      Thank you for caring.
      Yes, there are several things you and other UK journalists can do:
      1) Subscribe to this blog site to keep updated on our progress;
      2) Send a contribution. No amount is too small, and every pound goes directly to helping Haitian journalists. See the How to Contribute box on this page.
      3)Get others involved. Tell your friends about this project and refer them to this blog site.
      4)Volunteer to help via the Internet. If you have special skills in communications, press operations, networking, etc. we may be able to pair you up online with a Haitian newspaper or journalist with whom can offer guidance and assistance.

  2. I see mention of the need for “watchdogs” to trace the fate of aid funds. What type of protection is available to these journalists against retribution for their reporting? As we all know, they’ve paid severe penalties for questioning authority in the past.

  3. Are there any Catholic and Christian publications in Haiti? Are there any contacts avail thru this website to these orgs/execs/journalists? If so, please email me this information to Kingofkingsnetwork@gmail.com; as well as any interest on the part of this Project to include this niche market, as well.

  4. David,
    Two years ago President Preval created the Independent Commission to Support the Investigations of Assassinations of Journalists. The group is active and is at least taking an affirmative approach. But as the name implies, the commission’s focus is after the fact. Better to be proactive, and sadly there isn’t much of that.

  5. Please tell all about the Women’s rally tomorrow.

    Le journal Haïti-Développement a été créé le 23 février 2005. Le journal a organisé un forum de quatre jours sur la nécessité d’un plan national de développement pour Haïti du 28 au 31 mars 2005.
    Ce forum avait réuni des experts dans différents domaines pour présenter huit conférences-débats sur la problématique du développement d’Haïti. Le local du journal était logé à l’adresse suivante : 25, Rue Marron Inconnu , Port-au-Prince, Haïti en face du Palais National. Le local a subi des dommages lors du séisme du 12 janvier 2010. Depuis cette date, le journal Haïti-Développement a cessé provisoirement sa publication à cause des pertes de matériels enregistrées lors du séisme du 12 janvier 2010. Le journal Haïti-Développement sollicite une assistance technique et financière en vue de relancer sa publication dans le plus bref délai en vue de poursuivre sa mission de promouvoir le développement durable en Haïti.

  7. I am a journalism student currently pursuing a scholarship that would allow me to work for a news organization abroad. I am researching and compiling a proposal that would allow me to work in Haiti.
    Does anyone have any ideas of local, volunteer news organizations in Haiti that would be looking for a helping hand and how to contact them?
    , I would be so grateful for the information!
    My email is b.woolsey@hotmail.com
    Thanks!

  8. Hello,

    My name is Victor Macias. I am the co-founder of MaleStandard.com, a website focused on Making Men Better

    I’d like to share an interview we did with Patrick Shen and Jordan Wagner, founder of Generosity Water. In the after math of the Haiti Earthquake, these men went to film a documentary titled La Source which chronicles the work of a Haitian American who traveled haiti to build a water system to help his people.

    We interviewed Patrick and Jordan about their experiences in making the film and discuss ways we can help the situation. I invite you to take a look at the interview and share it with your readers if you think they’ll enjoy it.

    Thank you.
