The SELEH’s Call: Funding a New Canal on the Massacre River
The Syndicate of Employees of the Haitian State Lottery, known by its acronym SELEH in French, has recently expressed its unwavering support for the brave residents of the Grand Nord, especially those in Ouanaminthe, who have shown exemplary determination in the face of absurd threats from a neo-Nazi group in the Dominican Republic led by the disturbed Abinader, as stated by the Syndicate. In a recent statement, they hailed the patriotism of these citizens who, despite intimidation, continue to defend the interests of their nation. This resilience in the face of adversity deserves not only our admiration but also our unconditional support.
The Syndicate would like to remind everyone that the security of our country remains an absolute priority. However, Abinader’s decision to restrict trade with Haiti should not be seen as a hindrance but rather as an opportunity, according to SELEH. In reality, it could become a major catalyst to encourage new investments in Haiti.
It is in this perspective that SELEH strongly urges stakeholders in the gambling and gaming sector in Haiti to consider financing a second canal on the Massacre River. This infrastructure would have a significant impact on irrigating over 700 hectares of land in the Maribahoux plain, which remain unexploited despite the construction of the first dam on the Haitian side. The local population is ready to invest in the realization of this project.
It is important to remember that the Haitian State Lottery has already supported major projects such as the Préligre Dam and the Military Hospital of Haiti, demonstrating its capacity to contribute to national development.
