Liancourt is a community situated in the countryside of Haiti. Many residents move from Liancourt to Port Au Prince in search of jobs and better education for their children. Since the earthquake there has been mass exodus of people back to Liancourt as they have lost their homes, family members, jobs etc. These people move in with relatives or friends in their very small living quarters. There are no jobs in Liancourt. The residents rely on agriculture for their livelihood, but that industry is suffering bitterly due to lack of adequate water supply for the plants as well as influx of United States subsidized goods.
The Danoit Haitian Relief Society has started a small community garden and has also dug a 50 ft well and a 10 × 10 water reservoir so that water will be available for the crops.
The Society has given a local family a dozen chickens to rear so that they can generate some income, eat and send their children to school. We have also teamed up with an already existing tree planting project.
Our goal is to continue with these projects as well as expand to other families.
