Anse-d'Hainault in Haiti

Anse-d'Hainault, a cityship part of the Anse-d'Hainault Arrondissement and a third-tier directorate department in the Grand'Anse area, is located on the western tip of Haiti's peninsula. The city has a low-density population of 23,185 residents, and a low-humidity tropical climate. Its mineral-rich soil contains clay deposits, and its terrain is studded with farmlands and indigenous vegetation. As elsewhere in Haiti, Anse-d'Hainault is a predominately Catholic community.


When the 7.0 magnitude 2010 earthquake shook Port-au-Prince and other regions in the country to their foundations, emotional shock waves reverberated throughout the world. In the aftermath of the cataclysmic event, no place has had a stronger response and made a fuller commitment to Haiti than Holy Trinity Catholic Church (HTCC).

HTCC is located in Washington D.C., where they recently held their Third Annual Haiti Committee Dinner to educate their parishioners about the Haitian people's unquenchable spirit and resolve to move forward despite incalculable set-backs arising from the earthquake.

After the dinner, at which Haitian cuisine, desserts, and beverages were served, the Holy Trinity Haiti Committee (HTHC) aired "Reason to Hope", a PBS program describing and showing how the Haitian people have bounced back from the shattering event that leveled their country's infrastructure.

Following "Reason to Hope", there was a Q and A period. Guest speakers followed, who had visited Haiti, shared their experiences, which included helping rebuild the St. Jean Baptiste Church in Anse-d'Hainault. Attendees were encouraged to make contributions to HTHC so they may continue their work in Anse-d'Hainault.
