The non-profit, Rasin Foundation's mission is to improve the health of the poorest citizens of rural Haiti.
January 2013, I traveled for the first time with the doctors of the Rasin Foundation to their clinic in Le Petite Riviere, a village just outside of Leogane. Walking through the sugar cane field to the clinic the first day, I didn’t know what to expect. All I could see were lines of people forming outside the clinic door waiting for basic healthcare. They were dressed in their Sunday best, hats, dress shoes, dresses and suits. They were infants, children, parents, grandparents and great grandparents. They were all there to see the volunteer doctors of The Rasin Foundation.
The Faces of the Rasin Foundation is an on going series of portraits of the residents of Le Petite Riveire who now are able to receive medical care because of the work of the Rasin Foundation.
