A Sacred Space: A Mother’s Strength

The Presbyterian Haiti Response Team is currently working on a documentary following those affected by the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.     This will be a long term project spanning several years. Through it, you are invited into the "Sacred Space" of those impacted by the disaster as they rebuild.  

In the following stories about Marie and her family, you’ll experience how Haitians - thanks in part to your donations, mission work, and prayers - are coming together to overcome incredible odds.
