Global Financial Integrity (GFI) and other non-governmental organizations, including OMI JPIC released a letter today calling on the United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken to assist the Haitian government in fighting corruption.

Recent violent protests in Haiti underscore the people’s frustration with systemic corruption that exists within the government. The Biden Administration has presented a foreign policy goal of addressing corruption around the world and, as such, must support the Haitian government in developing critically important anti-corruption measures. This would be beneficial to the people of Haiti, the United States of America and the world.

Visit Global Financial Integrity’s website to read the full press release.

On a related note: United Nations representatives of congregations of Catholic Sisters, Brothers, priests and partners in mission, many of whom have active ministries in Haiti, also wrote H.E. Mrs. Linda Thomas-Greenfield,, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United nations to express  deep concern over the rapidly escalating unrest in Haiti. Read the letter here.
