Jalousie Paint Job a Sham Makeover

The Haiti government has spent $1.2 million on a paint job to improve the drab houses of Jalousie. The reason is houses face luxury hotels across the way in Petion-Ville. The government wants hotel guests to believe they are looking out onto a plush suburb instead of a slum.

Jalousie says it needs water, sanitation, and health clinics. The government says be patient; Jalousie will get their needs met when more money is freed up.
