Hundreds of Haitians took to the streets of Port-au-Prince to protest the recent kidnapping of an American nurse and her daughter. The marchers expressed their frustration and anger towards the growing violence and insecurity in the country. The nurse, Alix Dorsainvil, had been working for the El Roi Haiti nonprofit organization when she was abducted.
Eyewitnesses reported that a group of armed men stormed the organization’s clinic and forcefully took her. The unidentified kidnappers demanded a ransom of $1 million, a common occurrence in Haiti’s rampant kidnapping epidemic.
This incident further highlights the dire situation in the country, as gangs continue to terrorize communities already plagued by poverty. The protest serves as a plea from the Haitian people for peace and stability in their lives.
