Shakira Blogs About Her Visit To Haiti

Shakira in the dark

blogged about her experience visiting Haiti last weekend for the Huffington Post. The singer, activist and founder of the Barefoot Foundation writes:

This past Sunday I visited Haiti. Never before had I seen a place with this level of destruction. They have been left with no infrastructure: water, sanitation, electricity, schools or hospitals, and 86 percent of the population is unemployed with one million eight hundred thousand people displaced.

I saw mothers who lost their children, children who lost their parents, women who have lost their entire families forever. I saw a country that lost nearly everything, but somehow, still has its strength. I will forever remember the gaze of men and women who, despite everything, do not feel defeated.
