We were visited today by the USAID Director of the Food For Peace Program and the USAID Director here in Haiti. They came to see the Food Distribution Depot and the Irrigation Project. Above is Beth Cypser, the Haiti Director, as she addresses the crowd gathered in the arched metal building. She is flanked by yours truly and Dr. Banatte, the CRS host for the trip. The other photo is of Jeff Borns, USAID Director of the Food for Peace Program, receiving a metal version of the USAID shield done by one of our artisans, Jean Remy Nelson. The visit was short and sweet and they were pleased to see the results of our collaboration.
