Haitian Refugees

Seven-year-old Carmelita Dolcy is one of thousands of Haitian refugees living in the Dominican Republic. Carmelita’s family, now resettled in Santo Domingo, was forced to leave Haiti in 2004. The family has been assisted by Catholic Relief Services through our partner the Haitian Archdiocese which helped Carmelita’s mother set up her small used bedding and linens business.
