Meet Jonas!

Jonas Nazaire came to SVC in second grade and was introduced to a sponsor from the United States. (The sponsor has asked that her name to be withheld.) Jonas is now 27 years old, and the special relationship he has with his American friend has grown over the years. Their weekly conversations  are sacred moments which provide him with tremendous emotional and psychological support. Jonas states that her friendship is especially meaningful because he doesn’t live with his biological mother. His mother lives in one of the poorest areas of Port-au-Prince, and struggles with diabetes and unemployment. Père Fanfan met with her not too long ago and she thanked God for everyone at the Centre who has given her son another chance at life. Jonas is learning to be a computer technician, despite his motor impairment, and enjoys helping Père Fanfan with his computer work.
