The coming year will be a very challenging one for Haiti as it seeks to recover and rebuild from January’s tragic earthquake, but with the right international support the country can embark on a new era of stability and growth, the top United Nations official there said today.

“I believe the next 12 to 18 months are a period of great challenge and risk in Haiti, but one which we can help the Government to weather,” Edmond Mulet, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and head of the UN peacekeeping mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), told a Security Council meeting.

    Haiti can recover and become a stronger nation than it has ever been- if the right infrastructure is put into place not only to rebuild it but to educate the Haitian people and get them out of the cycle of poverty. My heart goes out to these people. Thank you CNN, the UN, and Sean Penn. It's all for love.
