Cornillon - Brand Bois, Haiti

East of Port-au-Prince, in the district of Croix-des-Bouquets, is Cornillon, a town right along the Haitian border with the Dominican Republic. As of 2009, there were over 50,000 people living in the municipality that has its main source of income tied to the cultivation of crops such as fruit trees and coffee. The town recently celebrated its 125th anniversary, an event for which they had a fundraiser and welcomed President Martelly, who went bearing gifts of agricultural tools for local farmers and scholarships to universities for 3 deserving residents.
