Minister Farrakhan speaks on his Caribbean Tour with Cliff Kelley: "Thousands of Haitians are still living in tents."


In the recent edition of The Final Call newspaper, there is an excerpt of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan's latest interview with Cliff Kelley of Chicago's WVON 1690. In part of the interview Minister Farrakhan discussed his Caribbean tour he made in December that included Jamaica, St. Kitts and Haiti.

"And I wanted to talk to the common people of Haiti. …Two years after such a devastating earthquake, thousands upon thousands of Haitians are still living in tents. Cholera, which is believed to have been brought to the island by the Nepalese members of the United Nations Force through their excrement either being dropped or thrown in the river, and it began to spread. So when Ezili Danto mentioned to me that what they need is clean, pure, drinking water, The Nation of Islam raised $130,000 to send to Haiti a state-of-the-art machine that is solar powered, that can turn out 30,000 gallons of water a day. And through the office of Ezili Danto and the Haitian Muslims [of the Nation of Islam] who went down when the machine came, we placed that water machine among the people of vodou so that those that have been cut off, those that have been marginalized, could have something to offer to the Haitian people that everybody needs and wants, which is water," he said.

"But I said after Saviours’ Day, I wanted to bring another one down and give it to the Muslims, and another one to the Christians, because my aim is to bring the Christian family, the Muslim family, and the family of vodou together, because it’s going to take all working together, by the Grace of God, to free Haiti from Western domination."
