Zanmi kanmarad nou yo bonjou
Greetings to our comrades and friends,
Kijan nou ye? Eske nou repran moral nou?
How are you? Is your morale better now?
Nou menm oganizasyon patne ki nan rejyon latibonit lan, nou te chita ansanm pa zon pou nou te reflechi sou sak pase a. Dapre refleksyon nou yo, se yon aksidan ki rive, tankou sa abitye rive anpil nan manm nou yo sitou ti machand ki vwayaje Potopresn yo. Se ka ensekirite Global peyi a. Se vre se yon kou di pou LF pou chofe ki tap kondwi machin nan, le li pa konnen ki bo yo fe ak kanmarad li yo. Sa yo pral fe ak yo. Se te pi di toujou pou kanmarad yo ki livre nan men kidnape yo, kap sibi presyon, e yo pa konnen ki so yo. Se te yon kou di tou, pou res manm Lanbi yo, ki tap viv moman pak la tap rive. Bon Dye te la. Bagay yo pase jan yo pase a, konpliman pou Bon Dye.
Members of our partner organizations from the Artibonite sat down in our respective areas to reflect about what had happened. Based on our reflection this incident that occurred is what our members experience, especially the little market women who travel to Port-au-Prince. There is a global insecurity problem in Haiti. It is true it was a blow to Lambi Fund, especially to the driver who did not know what had happened to his colleagues and what their fate would be.
It was even harder for those kidnapped that were under pressure not knowing what their fate would be. It was a hard blow also for the other members of Lambi Fund who had to experience this with Easter around the corner. God was a witness and things happened as they did, thanks to God!
Nou menm kise oganizasyon patne LF travay nen latibonit lan nou endiye devan aksyon revoltan sa a, kom pep ki reve yon chanjman, kom moun kap batay pou yon lot sosyete, aksyon sa yo revolte nou anpil e se konsekans move pratik politik ki trennen peyi a nan lawont ak desepsyon li trouve l la a.
The members of LF partner organizations in the Artibonite are indignant with regard to this revolting action; as people dreaming of change, as people struggling for a different kind of society, actions like this revolt us very much and are the consequence of bad political practices that drag our country down in the shame and deception it finds itself in today.
Zanmi nou yo kouraj, fok nou knotinye lite pou chanjman reyel la. Pa dekouraje oganizasayon baz yo makonnen fos yo ak fos pa nou pou n rive kwape fos fe nwa yo bloke wout chanjman an. Kenbe pa lage!
Courage our friends because it is necessary that we continue to struggle for real change!
Do not get discouraged for we of the grassroots organizations join our forces with yours to overcome the forces of darkness that block the road to change. Keep the faith!
