I remember spending damn near 3,100 gourdes ($36.35 USD) trying to get my homie @filsjnlouis just ONE solar lamp back in #haiti yet over in the states? It’s just ONE DOLLAR - even sending the lights back over to my homie is nearly impossible and costs more than the product itself.
I can’t tell you how absolutely frustrated I am with the unfair trade agreements that prevent products and prices like this from reaching countries like Haiti.
I hate it when people say Haiti is poor - that’s barely scratching the surface. Haiti is #FREE, the West just hasn’t stopped punishing them for it.
