HAITI

 

 

Haiti is a Caribbean country located on the western side of the island of Hispaniola and is one of the poorest countries on earth. I accompanied members from the Hope for Haiti organization to Haiti in 2002 to document their work there.

The Charitable organization is led by founder, JoAnne Kuehner of Naples, FL. She joined forces with Dr. Keith Hussey in 1997 to focus on nutrition, healthcare and education for the extremely poor people of Haiti.
