Meet Emmanuel & Rolph

New Family Home Donated by Drexel’s Columbus Team

Emmanuel, age 8, and Rolph, age 10, lived in an orphanage for six years. The brothers’ mother and father live together in Morne Coquille (a town in the center of Les Cayes) with two additional children.

Their mother is the only one employed in the household. She is a cleaning lady with a very low salary of 3,000 gourdes ($46 USD) per month. This undignified salary is very far from being able to provide for the needs of the family. In fact, the family lives in a situation of extreme poverty.

The family house, which seems to be very old, is not even connected to the city’s electricity network. Deprived of public electricity, the house is illuminated with candles and incandescent lamps. The structure is crumbling and is without framing to support the walls.
