While in high school, Fenol supported himself by traveling to the surrounding communities, purchasing livestock, and selling it in the Fond des Blancs market. He thinks Haiti Projects is extremely important to the growth of the community because it is one of the only sources of employment and of the connection it enjoys to the world.
JULIEN DENOE Maintenance and Driver
Julien Haiti Projects Julien Denoe began working for Haiti Projects in 1999. His enthusiasm and readiness to work turned a temporary stint into a full time job. Julien leads maintenance for all program areas at Haiti Projects. His favorite responsibility is driving for the mobile clinics. Travel can be arduous throughout Haiti. At times he arrives soaking wet because of rains. Other times he has arrived to the destination pushing our motorcycle because of a flat tire. Julien always arrives because the women waiting for their appointments with the nurses is most critical to him and our mission.
