COVID-19 variants have triggered a wave of new infections in Haiti. The country currently has no vaccines with which to fight the virus. In fact, Haiti is the only country in the Western Hemisphere with no vaccinations.

Eva DeHart of For Haiti with Love says outbreaks have concentrated in southern parts of Haiti, away from the areas where they work. “You don’t just hop on a bus and ride to Cap-Haïtien unless you really have a purpose. Because it’s a six- or seven-hour drive. The buses don’t go through the mountains very fast, and they keep stopping along the way. And so even though they’ve got fairly nice buses now, the trip is still grueling, and you’ve really got to have a reason to do it.”
