I just returned from my third visit to the island of Hispaniola and my first visit to Haiti. My previous trips I focused my service work in the Dominican Republic, in the area surrounding Puerta Plata. This trip took us first into Haiti to visit what will be the home of our orphanage in the town of Phaeton.
I wanted to write an account of our time in Haiti and then changed my mind. Review the video below. Look at the pictures. Both beauty and devastation all wrapped up together. These children in Phaeton are starving. Well, not on my watch. We (Drs. Janice Hughes, Martha Nessler and myself) have committed to feeding, educating and building an orphanage in this town. Don’t worry, you can help. I’ll keep you informed on how! Dr. Steph
Meet Elmond Jean. He is an amazing man that guided our group of doctors to Haiti and hooked us up with this town in need.
