Meet Alisna

Alisna Menard is at least 100 years old! She used to be homeless and lived on the street, but she was referred to our partner, the Foyer St. Etienne, two years ago. She is often heard saying, “M’ap priye pou ou.” – “I will pray for you.” In partnership with The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, Hope for Haiti has long supported the Foyer St. Etienne, a home which cares for elderly, and often abandoned, residents in Les Cayes. As caregiver Fr. Fred Charpentiers says, “For our residents who have left behind the slums, back porches, and a life of begging, this place is indeed a taste of heaven, and finally a real home.”

“Investing in Healthcare is one
of the greatest gifts one can make
to increase the quality of life for an
individual. Our family has seen Hope
for Haiti’s work on the ground firsthand
and the growth of the organization. It is
the staff and their dedication to providing
quality service to those who need
it most, which makes the programs so
