Below are many individual portraits of Lafana children, classroom scenes, and scenes from the Christmas party where Marie is passing out presents to the children. The interior classroom scenes were shot in a very small building which previously served as a storehouse. Hurricane Sandy and subsequent heavy rains resulted in floods which practically destroyed the school buildings. There is very little shelter on site, so you see one young man sleeping against a matress propped up on a tree!
October - November 2010 Photos
These are some of the photos taken at Lafana from late October to early November. Some of the more notable ones include images of our backyard classrooms, now held in tents donated by the UN Children's Fund, as our classrooms were destroyed in the quake. Also pictured are photos of our new medicine dispensary, with first aid supplies generously donated by the Haiti Participative, and photos depicted everyday life at Lafana--bathing at an open spring, preparing food for the children, etc.
These pictures depict the living conditions of Lafana. Here you will find photos of our outdoor classrooms, kitchen, off-site water source, current housing situation, and impacts of the January 12, 2010, quake on our buildings. Our photos are updated periodically. The majority of these are from April and September 2010.
