Where

Following the catastrophic earthquake of 2010 near Port-au-Prince, thousands of area residents flocked to Jérémie by boat and bus to escape the devastation resulting from a lack of food, water, medical resources and civil order.

Many children traveled or were brought here by family and friends who could not provide for them, but felt this area was the best opportunity for their survival. PIPH serves this population of orphaned or abandoned children.
