he bishops of the Catholic Church of Haiti (CEH), meeting in Ordinary Plenary Assembly, in their traditional Christmas message expressed their concern about massive migration and corruption.

The Bishops of the Catholic Church of Haiti are concerned about the growing phenomenon of mass migration of Haitians, especially young people, to Latin America (Chile and Brazil), the Caribbean and North America (Canada and USA). "This migratory flow deprives Haiti of a significant part of its youth, its cadres. It is the very future of the country that is threatened. The young people of Haiti are struggling to hope, to build their future in a country which, in their opinion, offers them no chance, no prospect for the future. "

The bishops also denounce, and above all, the brazen and shameless corruption that is displayed at all levels of society and which is becoming endemic. They argue that the plague of corruption must be denounced and fiercely opposed by those who hold the authority and with "the generous support of all citizens, animated by a strong moral conscience".

"Some people honestly fructify their credit. But unfortunately many others enrich themselves with impunity, fraudulently to the detriment of the impoverished population. Impunity, the authors of the evil are tolerated, even protected by those who should chastise them and bring them back on the right path."

In addition, the Haitian Catholic Bishops urge supporters of the three powers of the state to take firm measures and concerted decisions to create conditions conducive to job creation, state stability and security of the nation. "We urge the elites of different sectors (economic, political, professional) and politicians to invest and invest more in the consolidation of institutions, respect for democratic rules and development of the country."
