Fonds-Verretes, a Town in Haiti

Our visit to Haiti helped us understand the transport challenges facing the peple of Haiti and especially those from Fonds-Verrettes. Fonds-Verretes is 53km from Port-au-Prince along the Haitian border with Dominican Republic. It took us over 2 hours to drive from the capital to the remote village. Even with good performing trucks, we couldn't make over 35 miles per hour. The road is paved for a short distance and the rest is dirty road. The road is narrow and has several dropping cliffs. It is two way traffic and vehicles easily roll down the steep inclines. Like this tap-tap we found which rolled about 20m down a steep cliff.
