Mother and sons

This mother walked from Les Cayes (over an hour) to visit her two older boys who are residents of Espwa.  She comes at least once a week.  They enjoy each others' company for a little bit and then she heads back to the city with tears in her eyes.

  3. You are doing a beautiful thing, keeping families together. It is unfortunate that another non-profit in the area is asking parents to give up legal custody of their children and never see them again. I wonder if the parents understand the pact they are making.
