The household is filled with people that aren’t related but have been forced to live in community because of their situation. Derisien Marie Isreal (60) is the elder and watches over Kawar Derisier (28), Rosier Batichon (22), Liliane, Julbertha, Gilbert, and Godenson Jean Paul (11). Only two of the children were actually born within the house and the rest have found it home throughout the years.
There is a local pump located near the home and only takes someone 10-15 minutes depending on the wait. The family does not pay to collect water from the pump.
Derisier cannot keep track of how many times someone in the family battles with stomach pains/ aches and or diarrhea. When someone in the family begins to battle with any of the symptoms it usually last about eight days and if they become extremely sick the have to travel one and a half hours walking to pay 500 Haitian dollars for medical attention.
When asked who in the household is currently working she said “no one is working, God takes care of our needs.”
