"Ils étaient comme des ficelles"

Bertha Louisius rit en décrivant le soulagement et la gratitude qu’elle ressent maintenant chaque fois qu’elle voit ses jumeaux. "Ils étaient si petits, ils étaient tellement malades. Je ne savais pas quoi faire. Je n’avais pas d’argent et rien de ce que je faisais ne fonctionnait. Je pensais qu’ils pouvaient mourir, mais je ne savais pas ce que je pouvais faire. J’avais laissé leur sort à Dieu quand j’ai rencontré ces infirmières."

They Were Like Threads

Their mother, Bertha Louisius, laughs as she describes the relief and gratitude she feels every time she sees her twins now. “They were so small, they were so sick. I didn’t know what to do. I had no money, and nothing I was doing worked. I thought they might die, but I didn’t know what I could do. I had given their fate to God when I met these nurses.”

Coming Home to Kabay

Remis Pierre returned to his home community of Kabay after a stint working in the neighboring Dominican Republic, and has now been able to make a living for himself at home as a result of an MCC agroforestry project. He wants to encourage other young people in his community to "take heart and work together" to make a better future for themselves and their families.
