This is a digital sketch made with some free software I found. It's Evans Paul who used to be a radical militant (activist) leader in the grassroots Haitian Lavalas party. He was part of the movement that toppled former dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier. He was arrested and tortured in prison under the military government of Prosper Aril. Evans Paul split with the Lavalas party and became a critic and worse.
The Haiti Emergency Relief Fund (HERF) based in Oakland, California places funds directly into the hands of the people in Haiti who need it most. This is Haitian-directed aid, an important distinction. HERF acts immediately to assist Haitians with the cholera epidemic, health care, education, human rights, women's organizing, local food production and more.
