Moving to Haiti (Petrionville)  (1 Answer)

Hello!

I am in need of advice. My husband has been offered a position to work in Port-Au-Prince/Petrionville area for 9 months. He is Haitian and I am American Swedish. Has anyone lived in Petrionville as an American? I have visited Haiti, but I am nervous about living there. The safety and expenses involved with moving /living there. Can anyone tell me their experiences living in Haiti and what a desirable wage for 2 people to live off of would be? Thank you!

Travel safety for American youth group, female  (6 Answers)

My daughter, 17, is scheduled to take a mission trip with her youth group to Haiti next month. I am very concerned about her safety. I am trying to understand the situation there and whether or not to allow her to go at this time.
This is what we are hearing:
1. the large-scale deportation of Haitians from the Dominican has horribly uprooted thousands
2. the shooting of a pastor from Kentucky , a Haiti pastor and his daughters and the kidnapping of a woman from one of the cars.

Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.

Wall guesthouse in Port au Prince is horrible -- any other recommendations?  (4 Answers)

We used to stay at the Wall Guest House - but there's a voyeur on their staff & the place is unsafe for women (not just the voyeur: no locks on doors, broken windows in showers, no curtains).

We found the hotel by the airport is decent & has air conditioning (same price as the crappy Wall house) but we want more choices.
