One of our young residents, thirteen year old Rousman, has been bugging us incessantly to visit his family. Berthony Constant finally did so this past week and reports that the family is struggling to survive. All their combined energy goes into finding food to eat. There's no money for such luxuries as school or medical care. Lourdes Duclair, the mother, begged Berthony to take nine-year old Steevens with him so that he could eat regularly and go to school. To send the older girls to the local school would cost 600 dollars Haitian or $100 US. Drop a line to Dee at email@example.com if you are interested in assisting this family.
