Key delivery in Cité Féquière by community reconstruction

After already being responsibility for the shelter given to 100 families, the creation of a water distribution system, a family hospital called ST. Mary, and a bakery that trains the young in the art of baking, Father Rick Frechette and his team have recently gifted 22 houses to the needy, under their project for community reconstruction, 'Fors Lakay'.


The doctor, head of NPFS and the ST. Luke Foundation for over 26 years, put together, with his team, the project which is aimed at improving the Haitian population's conditions of living. The 22 houses are to be found in Cité Féquière, and were made possible by the ST. Luke Foundation as well as the ACD (Action Chretienne Pour Le Development).

The homes are now the permanent residences of 22 of the country's disenfranchised, impoverished and marginalized. The foundations responsibility hope to give these families not only shelter, but dignity. Ultimately, it is hoped that the project can positively affect the rate of crime, and will strengthen the bonds of family. The project also provided work for those in the community, who took part in the construction process.

On the 8th of November, in Cité Soleil, the 22 houses were inaugurated with a ceremony attended by ST. Luke Foundation supporters that included Hollywood actor and actress, Oscar winter Paul Haggis and APJ chairman, Madeleine Stowe, and Francesca Rava Foundation's chairman, Maria Vittoria Rava, among others. Members of the local authorities were present to give speeches and participate in the inauguration.
