I visited Haiti with Oxfam in 2002 and it’s the poorest place I’ve ever been, by a long way – it seems doubly unfair that it should be hit by such a devastating earthquake, especially after the hurricanes of the last two years. They do not have the resources needed to cope with a disaster of this scale, that is what makes this so much worse. I know how hard people there work to try to survive, they have an incredible spirit and face hardship head on without self pity. I can’t imagine how they are coping now.
