Haiti - Earthquake 2010 : Rain of tributes and sympathies
Tuesday, Jovenel Moïse laid a wreath of flowers at the foot of the monument erected in Saint-Christophe in memory of the countless victims of the earthquake of January 12, 2010. "Eleven years later, the wounds are still gaping. May the soul of our loved ones rest in Peace !"
Prime Minister Joseph Jouthe
"This January 12, 2021, we remember our loved ones, our compatriots and also the foreigners who disappeared during the 35 fateful seconds of January 12, 2010. In their honor, and in the name of the solidarity that we showed during the earthquake, let's get together to build a better tomorrow for our country."
Embassy of Haiti in Cuba
"January 12, 2010 remains and remains a sad memory in the memory of the Haitian people. In a few seconds, a violent earthquake takes hundreds of thousands of lives. The economic, social and security consequences have been devastating. However, Haiti was able to count on the solidarity of its own children and of the whole world. Eleven years later, the Embassy of Haiti in Havana insists on the need to learn lessons not only from this tragic event but also and above all from the spirit of unity which prevailed among the majority of us. Today we face many challenges, let's get together to overcome them and build a better tomorrow. Together, let's restore the image of our Country! Haiti will not perish !"
Consulate General of Haiti in Montreal
"On this day of commemoration of the 11th anniversary of the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010, the Consulate General of Haiti in Montreal extends its deep sympathies to the families of the Haitian community in Quebec in general and Montreal in particular who have lost loved ones during this disaster. The Consulate takes this opportunity to thank all of our hearts and all those who helped, in one way or another, the survivors and allowed them to build or strengthen their resilience."
American Embassy in Haiti
"Today we remember all those who were affected by the tragic earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010. We express our sincere condolences to all those who have lost loved ones and who still suffer from this heartbreaking disaster."
Valérie Plante, Mayor of Montreal
"Eleven years ago, a terrible earthquake claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in Haiti. This painful memory, we share it with the Haitian people. I take this day of commemoration to assure him that we will always be by his side."
Former Senator Youri Latortue
"Sad memories are those of the day when the outrage of misfortune was added to that of our misery, to leave - even today - a gaping wound and as sharp as on January 12, 2010. Losing those we have so much loved, in seconds, remains the most dreadful of traumas. If we cannot bring these loved ones back to life, in their memory, let's work to protect those who can by respecting structural building standards. The journey is arduous but with enlightened determination we will get there. Courage and Resilience, I wish you."
National Association of Haitian Magistrates (ANAMAH)
"January 12, 2010 - January 12, 2021, exactly 11 years since a devastating earthquake swept away under its tumultuous and fatal wings many lives including Rock Cadet, Jean Claude RigueurI, Carole Périn without counting lawyers, clerks, bailiffs, secretaries and litigants who were at the courthouse that day.
On this sad occasion, the National Association of Haitian Magistrates wishes courage to all fellow magistrates whose memory of their loved one suddenly removed from their affection is still obvious."
