This is 17 y/o Jonas who is presently a resident of the prison in Les Cayes.  Whatever he is accused of, he claims innocence.  No surprise there.  Paige was visiting the prison today and was allowed by the guards to take this close-up so that we could show you.  Doctor Jerry thinks he has hepatitis but blood-work is needed to determine which type- A, B or C.  He is in pain and has no appetite nor does he have a family to provide for him.  We'll be going back tomorrow (with Doctor J.) to see how we can help him and the other minors being held there.  We'd like to purchase personal hygiene kits for the all the prisoners (all 460 of 'em) which would include soap, shampoo, deodorant, powder, tooth paste and brush, laundry soap.  Will let you know the cost in another post.
