November 2021 Haiti Update: Americans Kidnapped, No Fuel in Country, Resources Dwindling

Updated: Mar 25, 2022

You've most likely heard by now but Haiti has been in news headlines for more negative, scary reasons in recent weeks. Sixteen Americans and one Canadian with the group Christian Aid Ministries, out of Ohio, are on week three of being held for ransom by a notorious criminal gang in Haiti. Gang members are asking for $17 million, one million dollars per person, for their release.

The group was abducted while traveling outside of the capital city, on a street that is known to be in gang territory. It is unknown where they are at this time and what condition they are in, although there has been proof of life.
