Fonds-Verrettes and its devastating floods
I had an opportunity this February to tour Fonds-Verrettes and was able to see the great work that Plant with Purpose has been able to do for the community. Plant with Purpose began its mission in Fonds Verrettes in 2004 a time when the area experienced devastating floods that saw over 4,000 people die in both Haiti and Dominican republic along the border. For the three days I spend there I and the visiting partners were able to witness the transformation that Plant with Purpose has brought to the region through development programs. The program has empowered Haitian powers enormously and there has been Environmental, Economic and Spiritual transformation in the area. Our visitors had time to relate with local farmers and our regional Plant with Purpose staff.
