Haiti - National Diaspora Day : Message of reflection from Lesly Condé
As part of the celebration of the National Day of the Haitian Diaspora, Lesly Condé Ex-Consul General of Haiti in Chicago (August 2004 - May 2018), delivers a message of reflection that we invite you to read and share.

Message from Lesly Condé :
"Members of the great Haitian family everywhere,

On the occasion of National Haitian Diaspora Day, I am satisfied to be able to be in your company wherever you are on this planet. It is an opportunity for all Haitians to think about the corner of paradise that they had to leave behind, and that they learn to appreciate more and more as time passes and experiences accumulate. These experiences have a way of reminding us that we are far from the land that is ours and to which we belong. There is also this feeling of helplessness that invades us when we see the dizzying regression into which our country is falling. However, our diaspora is full of talents and skills that are just waiting to be useful in their country of origin.

The Haitian diaspora is diversifying and expanding as time passes and the situation in our country refuses to improve. Today we have a diaspora on all continents. Above all, we must be aware of the fact that citizens who are desperate to the point of wanting to leave their country at any cost are extremely vulnerable. There are therefore compatriots in the diaspora who need solidarity.

Our young compatriots do not hesitate to throw themselves by the thousands into the arms of uncertainty rather than face certain obliteration. It is not uncommon for the opportunities found to be virtual slavery. But we are, all the same, satisfied to be able to work, and there is the family there waiting.

The primary concern of the majority of Haitians in the diaspora is the financial aid to be sent to the family in Haiti. This is how money transfers constitute an important element of our country's economy. It is hoped that this important contribution of the Haitian diaspora will one day be able to serve the cause of the development of our native land.

We all dream of the day when members of the Haitian diaspora will be able, if they wish, to return to the country to allow their compatriots to benefit from the training and experience they have acquired far from home."
