Lidiane

Lidiane      

Lidiane came to the Freedom House with her younger sister, Lina.  She is from Laborde, a village in the mountains of central Haiti.  The village, only accessible by foot, has no schools, churches or medical care.  Many children from this area are dying from malnutrition and worms, have scabies, and are being sold into slavery and abused.  Her father died and her mother was not able to care for her.  Lidiane had never gone to school and was living in very poor conditions.  She did not have decent clothes, was not able to brush her teeth, and had never owned a pair of shoes.  She was lucky to receive one meal a day, if at all.  She now has Christ in her heart and loves her new life.
