Although it’s been months since January’s devastating earthquake on the island of Haiti, Wyclef Jean is continuing to speak out on his native country.

As previously reported the artist and founder of Yele Haiti penned a letter to the government asking them to further help Haitians left homeless during the nation’s rainy season.

Now he’s moved on to the American public and saysthat people are still suffering.

According to Wyclef there are still a number of people in need of aid including millions who are still homeless.

“1.2 million people are still living out of tents, people are still hungry and the situation of helping through medicine is very important…What I want people to understand is you have a population that’s still suffering and is still in need of aid.”

Wyclef also says that the infrastructure of the country must be strengthened so they can continue to rebuild.

“As we rebuild we have to make sure there’s a strong education program in this country where kids are learning how to read and write. You’re not going to move a country forward until you do that…”

Check out Wycelf’s interview with MSNBC below.
