Haiti : Vatican Radio Interview

March 1st, 2010

w-haiti-rubble-cp-8005393In an interview with Vatican Radio,  Séamus Finn, OMI – Director of the US Oblate JPIC Office – talks about the situation in Haiti and  re-development needs of the devastated country. The Oblates are the largest male religious congregation in the country. In the interview, he touches on important Haitian realities: the poverty, the stranglehold of Haiti’s debt and a process for re-building.

Fr. Finn emphasizes the need both to avoid incurring further debt in the re-building and to involve Haitians in the rebuilding of their country. He discusses ways in which the Nuncio, the Catholic Church and Oblates of the USA along with generous donors are working with the Haitian Bishop’s Conference to help Haiti rebuild. Fr. Finn also addresses the need to address the trauma – the psychological scars from the massive earthquake: the loss of families, homes, work, schools, churches…..
