Recognizing the need for seniors to engage in meaningful activities Mrs. Danie Lubin, a Massachusetts resident and a native of Port-a-Piment, inaugurated a recreational program (La Vi Pa Nou) last April 5th, 2017 in Port-a-Piment, Haiti. The program runs two days a week and offers opportunities for the elderly aged 65 and over to engage in meaningful activities to enhance their personal well being, challenge ageism and celebrate the wisdom and experience of age.
Danie is not new to this type of activities; last summer she held a summer camp for the elderly which was very successful. This year and especially after the devastating hurricane, Danie doubled her efforts to pay special attention to the seniors of her lovely town. More than 20 seniors are registered members of the program. They meet every Wednesday and Friday from 9 AM to 2 PM.
The program is run by Mrs. Joacine LouisJean . To meet the challenges ahead, Danie needs the cooperation and help of her fellow portapimentais and friends. She can be reached via email at email@example.com
The pictures displayed on the following video were taken in April 2017 during our first visit after Hurricane Matthew devastated Port-a-Piment, a town located on the southwest coast of Haiti.
Port-a-Piment , the beautiful town that we cherish and love still maintains its charm and elegance. The scars of Matthew are everywhere. We have noticed many damaged or destroyed homes.. However, efforts are being done by many residents to repair their damaged homes.
The streets of Port-a-Piment are clean and the residents keep their smile despite the hardship they are enduring. Port-a-Piment needs more than ever the support of its sons, daughters and friends. Please click below:
