Shakira 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.
