Trocher Marc André

Trocher, originally from the Port-au-Prince area, was borne into extreme poverty and abandoned by his mother, who lacked the ability and means to house and feed him. He was given to an acquaintance, a very poor, old woman, to live with her in a small unsanitary house made of cardboard and plywood.

He spends his days working along with her to help eke out a living, often standing in the polluted river to wash clothes. He is extremely vulnerable to disease and suffers from chronic undernutrition, yet like most of our students, Trocher had never seen a doctor, nurse, or dentist before coming to IHCD, and had never been to school prior to enrolling in our education program.
