  • An orphanage lodging 66 children (23 handicapped including some very severely) and 16 teenagers follow a High School program in the city of Cayes.
  • A school accommodating 300 children, from kindergarten to the end of elementary school.
  • An housekeeping training center for 15 girls.
  • One pharmacy-laboratory. There are no doctors on the island.  It is Sister Flora who treats the patients, young and old.

Sister Flora’s orphanage is particular. In addition to welcoming abandoned children, it accommodates children of nobody wants to care for such as intellectually handicapped children with cerebral paralysis, polyhandicapped, babies with bad neat meningitis not properly cared for … These children are completely dependent  of Flora and her assistants.

 

To help

 

Ronald and his family decided to visit this island during their sailboat trip. See this island, this work, this unknown Haiti. But they don’t’ want to arrive with empty hands. Your contribution will make a difference.
