Read Ismaël touching story
Ismaël has lived in L’Arche Haiti since he was two or three years old. On September 6th, 2002 he was discovered by a Parish Priest in the courtyard of the St. Charles de Carrefour church in Carrefour. He had a rope tied around his neck to support his head. Fortunately, the priest took him to L’Arche where he was entrusted to the care of Jacqueline and others in L’Arche Haiti. Ismaël recently turned 18. He has grown well in L’Arche. Although he does not speak with words, he does find many ways to communicate, including through a great smile!
Report 2020/21 – A vision for the future, Haiti
Through the support of L’Arche International and the swift generosity of donors around the world, the community of Carrefour was able to use the opportunities created by the 2011 earthquake to think strategically and to envision a re-foundation plan. This plan involves a move away from the fault line, to a safer part of the city, while still remaining deeply rooted in local culture and meeting needs in Port-au-Prince.
