Pierre Dumas, Bishop of Anse-à-Veau et Miragoane, as President of Caritas Haiti, said: "We would like to thank the Mexican Episcopal Conference, that after the earthquake has continued to help our country, the Church of Haiti and the most vulnerable. In this sense, we can say that there really is a fraternal relationship between Mexico and Haiti, between the Church of Mexico and the Church of Haiti, thanks to the direct involvement of Bishops and Cardinals of Mexico. "
The note sent to Fides Agency by the Archdiocese of Mexico City recalls that the occasion of such ruling was given by the presentation, to Haiti, of the "Strategic Plan Caritas Haiti 2012-2017 ", in the presence of Caritas delegates from different countries of America, Bishops and laity, who recognized the spirit of brotherhood, perseverance and dedication of Caritas Mexico, after the earthquake in January 2010 "that has never left people alone in disgrace." "Today there are about 12 Caritas, including that of Mexico, which continues to have a physical presence in Haiti. Mexico should be proud of its ability to respond immediately to a brother country. Caritas Mexico has had a prominent role, "said Francisco Hernandez Rojas, regional coordinator of Caritas in Latin America and the Caribbean, which includes 22 organizations.
