Bon Repos, Haïti

 

Haïti is one of the poorest countries in the world. Thousands of children living in Haïti have become homeless and many of them do not have parents either. Meanhile, a beginning has been made building accommodation to shelter at least 48 children in the family houses to be constructed.

 

A "family" consists of 12 children with two aunts (caretakers) and a assistant aunt. Boys are separated from girls because of their culture. Besides accommodation the children also get clothes, education, food and medical care. Serious attention is paid to professionally supervising and consulting the traumatized orphans. The aunts (caretakers) of the orphans also get the training required.
