Samson is a bright and energetic ten year old with big dreams. He lives with his mother, three sisters, and three brothers in the village of Galette Chambon. His parents used to run a small store in the village that struggled to stay open, but it did make enough money to feed the family. After Hurricane Matthew, however, Samson’s father disappeared. They have been living off the generosity of neighbors every since. His mother is very shy and is very embarrassed to ask for help. Last year, she put his three sisters in an orphanage because she could not afford to feed all of her children. Once we found out about their situation we put Samson and his brother in the sponsorship program. Samson loves school and his favorite subjects are mathematics and French. When he grows up, he wants to be a politician and public speaker. When he’s not in school, he enjoys eating, sleeping, playing with friends, going to church, and studying. Samson says he loves all of the beauty of his country of Haiti and he loves that the Americans came to his village and help his community. He would love to work with them one day.
