How 26 Years Old Leader Werley Nortreus Survived The 2010 Haiti Earthquake?



Werley Nortreus was born and raised in Haiti. He was born in Limbe, near Cap-Haïtien, but he was raised in Port-Au-Prince, the capital of Haiti. He grew up in Haiti with his families and he went to Haiti’s most expensive and respected schools only. Unfortunately, on January 12th, 2010, he survived and experienced an earthquake that he will never forget for the rest of his life on this earth.

I was a survivor, I didn’t lose families and friends, but I will never forget that day for the rest of my life.“, said Werley Nortreus.

The 26 years old believe that God has a plan for him because he survived an earthquake that killed thousands of people across Haiti. He is lucky to be alive today and he believes God saved him so he can accomplish something for humanity.

Even when he didn’t lose families and friends during that earthquake, his heart is still suffering from sadness and pain because that earthquake killed thousands of people and destroyed cities across Haiti. Unfortunately, he will forever remember that day, and the sadness and the pain that he’s suffering from will never go away.

I wish I could change the past because no amount of money and no amount of fame can bring back those who died on that day. Unfortunately, the sadness and the pain that I am suffering from because of that deadly earthquake will never go away for the rest of my life.“, said Werley Nortreus.

According to Wiki, the 2010 Haiti earthquake was a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 Mw earthquake, with an epicenter near the town of Léogâne and approximately 25 kilometers west of Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital. The earthquake occurred at 16:53 local time on Tuesday, 12 January 2010.

2010 Haiti Earthquake Damage

It caused major damage in Port-au-Prince, Jacmel and other cities in the region. Notable landmark buildings were significantly damaged or destroyed, including the Presidential Palace, the National Assembly building, the Port-au-Prince Cathedral, and the main jail.

Among those killed was Archbishop of Port-au-Prince Joseph Serge Miot and opposition leader Micha Gaillard. An estimated three million people were affected by the quake. Death toll estimates range from 100,000 to about 160,000 to Haitian government figures from 220,000 to 316,000, although these latter figures are a matter of some dispute.

The government of Haiti estimated that 250,000 residences and 30,000 commercial buildings had collapsed or were severely damaged. The nation’s history of the national debt, prejudicial trade policies by other countries, and foreign intervention into national affairs contributed to the existing poverty and poor housing conditions that increased the death toll from the disaster.

To me, the month of January is the saddest month of the year.“, said Werley Nortreus.

During an interview with Werley, he came to the U.S. from Haiti after the 2010 earthquake that destroyed Haiti. He graduated from high school and college in the U.S. before he moved to Canada in 2017 after the TPS struggle with Homeland Security.

The U.S. wanted to deport the immigrants with the TPS status but thanks to Canada and other countries that open their doors to receive everyone, no matter their race, background, and color. Before he moved to Canada, he accomplished a lot in the U.S. and he’s grateful for everything he learned from the U.S. over the past years.

It looks like the 26 years old survivor used his pain then turned it into a major success. Years later, after he survived the 2010 Haiti earthquake, he has a strong relation with powerful world leaders, politicians, and business leaders.

Werley is now the CEO and founder of Ceraphin Corporation, a mass media company that he founded in 2015. He’s also the CEO and founder of several other businesses and media organizations, including radio stations.

Haitian Leaders Urged to End Political Impasse




PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, Wednesday February 26, 2020 – Leaders in Haiti must step up and end the
political impasse between President Jovenel Moïse and a surging opposition
movement that has paralyzed the island nation since July 2018, the top United
Nations (UN) official there says.

UN Special Representative Helen La
Lime made the call as she updated ambassadors on latest developments in the
prolonged divide which has left Haiti without a functioning government,
deflated the economy, and fuelled insecurity.

“Haiti is about to enter in its
second year with a caretaker government, its economy is forecast to sink deeper
into recession, and 4.6 million of its citizens are now estimated to require
humanitarian assistance,” she said, speaking via videoconference from Haiti’s

“To avoid a greater deterioration,
Haitian leaders need to rise to the occasion and commit to a way out of this
impasse that will best serve the interests of their people.”

La Lime was introducing the first
report on the UN Integrated Office in Haiti, which she heads.

Known by the French acronym BINUH, it
was stablished last October, following the end of 15 years of UN peacekeeping
operations. Its mandate includes strengthening political stability and good

During the past months, La Lime and
international partners the Organization of American States and the Holy See
have been supporting negotiations to forge consensus on a political

However, talks failed to yield
progress on the formation of a new government and the designation of a
“consensual” Prime Minister by the President.

“The lack of agreement on this
matter, as well as on the remaining length of President Moïse’s term, threatens
to needlessly prolong a situation that has already lasted too long,” she told
the UN Security Council.

In the interim, said Executive
Director of the non-profit Fondasyon Je Klere, Marie Yolène Gilles, who also
spoke from the capital city, Haitians are being subjected to widespread human
rights violations as armed gangs now control around a third of the country,
generating “a rising tide of cruelty”.

“We have witnessed odious killings,
decapitations, rapes, robberies, embezzlement and the diversion of supplies,
abductions and kidnappings,” she reported, later adding “we have death
squadrons, and that’s a form of state terrorism.”

La Lime told ambassadors the ongoing
impasse and economic troubles risk further affecting the integrity of the
national police and other key institutions.

The senior UN official said that while
the road to improved governance will be difficult, the deployment of the new UN
office should see deeper and more targeted collaboration with the country.

Success will be measured by progress
in six areas.  Besides facilitating
political consensus, strengthening the police and justice sectors, and
addressing unemployment and other grievances, benchmarks also focus on
addressing gang violence and promoting human rights.

“Only through a combination of strong
national will and steadfast international support can Haiti surmount the
multifaceted crisis with which it is contending,” said La Lime.

“I remain confident that the United Nations, in its new configuration, is uniquely placed to help State institutions address the factors that catalyze cyclical periods of instability in the country and ensure that Haiti is once again on the path to stability and sustainable development.”

Protests continue as violence intensifies





Anti-government protests continue to rock the Caribbean nation of Haiti for more than a year, with violence taking a deadly toll. 

Gunfire interrupted on the first day of Haiti’s biggest carnival in the capital of Port-au-Prince last weekend, leaving at least one person dead and several wounded.

Carnival celebrations were canceled Sunday by the government “in order to avoid a planned bloodshed,” according to a statement released by the Communication Ministry.

The UN and the 35-member Organization of American States (OAS) regional bloc condemned increase violence and voiced concern for Haitians.

“We condemn the violence in Haiti and express our condolences to the families of the victims. We advocate for the solutions the country needs: end of violence, violence is not acceptable in any form, and above all, it is not acceptable with the intention of a violent change in the established democratic regime; political dialogue; stability; formation of a government and parliamentary elections as soon as technically possible,” OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro tweeted Monday.

The UN also expressed concern about the police and military and condemned the use of violence by those branches.

It called on “all sectors of national life, in particular the police who demand better working conditions, to avoid any situation which could cause tensions to escalate and jeopardize the security of citizens.”

The UN and OAS have supported negotiations in recent months to forge consensus on a political agreement, but talks failed to yield progress on the formation of a new government.

Protests began in July 2018 in response to increased fuel prices, however, it evolved into demands for the resignation of President Jovenel Moise with a new wave of protests in February 2019.

Protesters demand the creation of a transitional government to provide social programs and prosecute allegedly corrupt officials.

They accuse senior government officials, including Moise, of misusing as much as $38 billion in loans from the Petrocaribe — an oil alliance between Caribbean member states and Venezuela.
