Day 3: connections
In the evening, we set off from Hinche to visit Partners in Health facility where Paul Farmer began his journey when he was 19. It is also the sight of an Episcopal Church School, sharing the same campus. We had the good fortune to meet the Episcopal priest (Fritz LaFontant - in photo) who befriended Paul Farmer and helped start Friends of Partners in Health in Haiti grow to what is today. He is very proud of the partnership and the subsequent growth of the schools in the region Partners works in (19 schools). Their is another Episcopal Priest (Pere Kesner) here who is the chaplain for the hospital and the priest in charge for schools.
