(Worthy News) - Civil unrest in Haiti is forcing missionaries to leave the country and has halted many others from heading there.

Multiple media outlets have reported on unprecedented dangers since riots have started in the country. The riots, an attempt to force a resignation of President Jovenel Moise, have caused families to go into hiding as cars have been destroyed and people have been forced to pay money just to travel on the streets.

"There have been lots of demonstrations in Haiti over the past year. There are lots of people that are unhappy with the government and the way the president is doing things. It's just been escalating and building up," Lisa Honorat of Haiti Arise said to CTV News. Honorat was one of two dozen missionaries from that group who have now fled the country.
