Since the earthquake of 2010, the Sisters of St. Antoine, who run the orphanage, K-14 school and clinic of Fondwa have been living in plywood shelters in the center of town. This makeshift housing is unlikely to withstand another hurricane season. The new residential facility will house not only the sisters supporting these activities, but also international volunteers and APF Haiti staff members.
With an initial donation of $50,000, construction began early this year. $170,000 is still needed to complete the building.
