A tragical accident happened on Sunday morning, 12th March 2017 in Mapou, a suburb of Gonaives. A fully occupied coach dashed in an unlit Rara group. 38 people died.
The partner of one of our laundry women (Jesula) is among the victims. He only picked up a Rara mate with his motorcycle , was seized by the coach and died still at the scene of the accident. Our condolence is aimed at all families of the 38 victims, our sympathy for the 13 injured people, the passengers of the coach and the driver.
All other co-workers here and our volunteers are unscathed. Thanks to God!
