Madame Jean Claude is sewing to make extra money for her family. She also works at night, cleaning the medical clinic run by Friends of Ft. Liberte after it closes. She is very proud of her children - her oldest daughter is a good student and is in Philosophy (grade 13). Her husband is a mason.
In response to our request, a Christian humanitarian group called Friends of Ft. Liberte organized a women’s cooperative to make baby booties. Friends of Ft. Liberte supports an orphanage, a school, a medical clinic, and a church in Ft. Liberte, offering both financial assistance and a steady supply of volunteers. Unfortunately, these facilities were heavily damaged during the earthquake and had to be rebuilt. Residents of Ft. Liberte labored together with volunteers to build better, earthquake-resistant facilities.
