Flower Power

  Philomene and her two youngest daughters.
 

Philomene is a widow with three daughters. Her oldest daughter is working in the Domincan Republic. Her middle daughter wants to go into agriculture. Her youngest daughter isn't sure yet.

To support her family, Philomene runs a small business, buying and selling goods. She has very little, but she is thankful for what she has. Inside her house, she decorated all the rooms with cloth flowers. It looks pretty, and it is heart-warming to see people with so little find ways to make their house a home.

  BJ, Food for the Poor's project manager for the Village of Joy, and I meet Philomene.
 

Like many other members of the community, Philomene tries to help her neighbors. For example, on the day we met her, she was allowing a man with a fever to sleep in one of the small bedrooms.

Life in Haiti can be difficult, but, with your help, we can make it easier for other families like Philomene’s. Please consider a small donation to help us fund the completion of the Village of Joy.
