26 Jun BLESSSING OF NEW HOMES THE POST-EARTQUAKE PROGRAM 2021
With great joy from the Carrefour Charles community, a town in southern Haiti, the final 20 houses of the “Jesuit Response to the 2021 Earthquake” Program were blessed.
As you may recall, in August 2021, the area was affected by a strong earthquake that left many families without homes.
In response, the Society of Jesus in Haiti organized itself and, with the support of the international community of friends and partners, managed to establish a Housing Construction Program for a group of families.
On this occasion, the keys were handed over and the houses were blessed by Monsignor Joseph Gontrand, Bishop of Jeremie, in Carrefour Charles.
Thus, this process, which brought much hope to about 500 families and cost $1,156,000, is considered concluded.
