The Island of La Gonave
Haiti is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere. La Gonave is an island, about 10 miles by 30 miles in size, where approximately 120,000 Haitians reside. You can reach it by boat in about 40 minutes from the coast near Port au Prince. To view a map of La Gonave CLICK HERE. Many years ago, La Gonave was used as the place where “undesirables” were sent from the mainland… criminals, the sick, the elderly… Haiti is poor and broken… La Gonave became the place one could find “the least of these”.
Today, a new story is unfolding… One of these stories is taking place in a small orphanage called, “The Jesus Home for Children of La Gonave”. You can be a part of this story today! Together, we can help give “the least of these” a future and a hope.
