We still remember that cold feeling of pain and death reaching every house, every home and every family.
We still remember these two dogs in Petion Ville waiting weeks and weeks for their owner to come back until the building was fully destroyed.
We still remember how difficult it was to explain to a charming little boy named Sylvaince why his beloved little cat was missing.
We still remember lines and lines of animals being treated and vaccinated by a group of hard workers wearing T-Shirts labelled ‘’ARCH’’
We still remember……..
By Dr. Jean Francois Thomas
Dr. Jean Francois Thomas, local Haitian veterinarian, led the ARCH effort in Haiti in the year following the earthquake. When the ARCH coalition was disbanded at the end of the project, Francois continued his work helping animals affected by disasters, and is currently WSPA’s Disaster Liaison Officer for Haiti.
