Meet Marie Francelene
Through her involvement in her local Church choir, Marie met long-time Hope for Haiti program partner Fr. Max Mathieu – who helped her continue through secondary school despite financial hurdles. “I finished high school and passed my state exam, allowing me to continue to higher education,” says Marie proudly. Hope for Haiti provided Marie with a scholarship to attend nursing school in Les Cayes. “I dream of healing accident victims, especially doing their sutures, and I always stop and try to help when there is an accident in my community.” Through nursing, Marie hopes to have a better life for herself by studying and working hard. For the future of her country, Marie hopes that the country changes so there is more opportunity for ambitious young people. “Haiti doesn’t have what it needs for the people living here, but it is very beautiful.” Hope for Haiti helps people who don’t have the means to help themselves, especially for children going to school.” Marie has every confidence that she’ll become a great nurse who can invest back into her community by providing quality healthcare.
