Steady Work in Haiti

One of the stories we are following in Cap-Haitian is the effect of consistent employment in a country with a reported 80% unemployment rate.  Gregory, an agronomist, was hired 4 years ago by Meds and Food for Kids (MFK) to work with farmers in the North of Haiti.  He helps small farmers develop better growing conditions for their peanuts. As farmers increase yields and lower contamination, they have a ready buyer with MFK.

Here’s Tim Maupin, DP, riding on the back of Gregory’s Motorcycle through Cap-Haitian.

The footage is fabulous thanks to Tim's daring.
