Visit of the United Nations Representative to Haiti to our Sisters in Haiti

Visit of the United Nations Representative to Haiti to our Sisters in Haiti On September 6, the United Nations Representative, Michel Forst wrote to Sr. Maria Grazia Caputo, who is in charge of the FMA human rights office in Geneva:
«I had an excellent meeting with the Salesian Sisters who are doing admirable work in difficult conditions. Thanks again for having facilitated these contacts! I hope to be able to speak to you again about it in Geneva ».

On the same day news arrived from Sr. Jolicoeur Rose Monique expressing her gratitude that the UN expert on arriving in Haiti , had been kind enough to visit them immediately. During the encounter they were able to present the work done by the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians both before and after last January's earthquake. Michel Forst expressed particular appreciation for the fact that the Institute is seeking not only to rebuild but also to strengthen the works they have throughout the country in order to help Haiti to take practical steps towards decentralisation. He then promised that he would support our mission.

It has been an important step for the FMA Office of Human Rights to be able to link up UN experts and the Sisters who are working at grass roots.

In June 2010, on the occasion of the side event promoted at the UN by IIMA and VIDES International on the rights to educational continuity in emergency situations, as in the case of Haiti , this representative to Haiti was invited. On that occasion he got to know the situation of the FMA, thanks to the testimony of our Sisters.

Mi fa molto piacere conoscere che le nostre Sorelle di Haiti abbiano avuto questo incoraggiamento! Riconoscere e incoraggiare raddoppia le forze. E godo anche tanto per la testimonianza che l`Istituto dà di attenzione ai poveri
