Kidnappers of Ohio Christian Aid missionaries demands $1bn

The gang that kidnapped 17 Christian Aid missionaries based out of Ohio doing work at a Haitian orphanage on Saturday is demanding a million-dollar ransom each for their release.

Speaking with WMFE  John Rife, who is with the St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church’s Haiti Ministry revealed how the recent kidnappings are changing the work they do in that country.

“You know, it’s very disheartening. Obviously, we are in communication with our Haitian-born staff that live and work down there and they’re very depressed knowing that it’s going to be even longer before we can come down to to work with them hand in hand.

“They’re, you know, they’re obviously very disappointed. They thankfully live in the countryside, which is not within the really boundaries of the gang-controlled areas of Port-au-Prince, which for us, at least is some relief.

“However, the gangs’ reach is so extensive that they are certainly feeling the supply chain issues and the fear of transporting you know, anything around the country, really locks them into one of the poorest parts of the country and really inaccessible to sort of the commerce that they have been accustomed to.”
