Stuff About Me:

Haiti   -   A humanitarian journey - Summer 2007

After 3 days in the “frying pan” of Port au Prince`s harbour, we finaly managed to clear through customs the containers we shipped from France to Florida, then to Haiti.

With two of my closest friends and committed activists, Marie and Jane, a Haitian and a Canadian, we finally decided to meet Pierre, the Director and Founder of a new Children Home, on the outskirt of the capitale. To reach him, we had to travel onboard a 4 wheel-drive vehicle which has seen better days. The car was so rusty that we thought we would loose parts on the local bumpy roads. This one-hour ride itself could be a whole chapter of a book.

Pierre is a defrocked local Catholic priest, of around 50, with a keen interest in women and a rather obscure past, as described by Sylvie, the President of the Association in charge of some of the humanitarian activities in Haiti.

He welcomes homeless and lost children, from Port au Prince, a city which provides them by lorry loads. Beggars, thieves, drug addicts, rapists, abused children, orphans or not, we met all of these lost souls, each with a different painful story.

Pierre teaches then gardening, farming and agriculture in a sort of an experimental farm which not only feeds them but also provide them with a free therapy and a meaning for their lives.

The children live in a barn, among their tools, seeds and books.

We promised him desks, furniture, more tools and books of course.How could we resist this charismatic old man?

He promised us he would carry on his role of father, mother and teacher for these children.  

At that very moment, I fell in love again with Haiti, like I did 22 years ago during my first trip to this forgotten island of the “Caribbean Paradise”.
