Jesuit Refugee Service had a grassroots presence in Haiti, providing humanitarian assistance to displaced Haitians both in the town of Ouanaminthe on the northeastern border with the Dominican Republic, and in the Dominican Republic itself.
Port au Prince, Haiti — Fr. Perard Monestime, S.J. talks about the long service of Jesuit Refugee Service in Haiti. For years before the crippling earthquake of January 12, 2010, Jesuit Refugee Service had a grassroots presence in Haiti, providing humanitarian assistance to displaced Haitians both in the town of Ouanaminthe on the northeastern border with the Dominican Republic, and in the Dominican Republic itself. 

Jesuit Refugee Service has accompanied the people of Ouanaminthe, a town of 100,000 inhabitants, through a series of challenges by offering schooling for children, helping to organize sustainable farming cooperatives, organizing well-digging projects and engaging in human rights monitoring.
