Port-a-Piment, six months after Hurricane Matthew

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:
