Despite the ongoing challenges of a devastating earthquake, presidential assassination and COVID in Haiti, the Notre Dame Bakery in Les Cayes has continued to employ eighteen bakery staff and provide work for a network of forty sellers.
Recently, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur partnered with D'lo Haiti to develop a reverse osmosis water purification system on the bakery site. This expansion will provide the bakery workers and sellers with a source of clean, safe, and affordable drinking water and a diversified revenue stream. The building to house the water purification system is complete and the equipment is partially installed.
