mrswanda @shopelda: Laundry time. // hand washing a load of clothes SEEMS easy enough, right? Soak em in water, swoosh em around, wring it out and presto! Guess again. Thinking back to the mothers at the Good Samaritan Orphanage tirelessly and skillfully creating suds upon suds by scrubbing the fabric together between their knuckles. Sounds of laughter erupting from women & children alike at the sight of our team quite literally rubbing material together until our knuckles bled and our whole selves got soaked. Humbling it is, to learn how others do things, and amazing grace how sweet the sound when you get put on wringing duty!

  •   phelima I DESPISE hand washing my clothes. But I don't like paying any to do it... so it must be done. 14h
  •   mrswanda OMG it's the worse but I'm uncomfortable with people washing or ironing for me so the struggle continues lol @phelima 14h
  •   phelima Exactly!!!! When I rented my apartment, my family asked me if I was going to get a servant. I looked at them like... "Hmmm, no." lol. And excuse my typo: it supposed to say "anyone" instead of "any" 14h
  •   mrswanda The funny thing is if I'm at family house in haiti and I don't let them do it they get offended, my mom always have to give this speech for me about how I'm not trying to be rude I'm just particular I always look at my mom like tell the truth @phelima 14h

mrswanda @el_tigrenegro: Choukoun is an 1883 poem by Haitian poet Oswald Durand. Its words are in Haitian Creole and became the lyrics to the song Choucoune later rewritten in English as Yellow Bird, based on the words "ti zwazo" from the poem.

Durand's inspiration for the poem was a marabou (a Haitian term for a dark skinned person with European features such as straight hair, straight nose, or thin lips ) woman named Marie Noel Belizaire—nicknamed Choucoune—who ran a restaurant in Cap-Haïtien. She met Durand, and the two had a romantic liaison. In the poem, Choucoune deserts the poet for a Frenchman's favors. Reportedly the real Choucoune and Durand parted because of the poet's serial philandering.

Marie Noel Belizaire is said to have died in 1924, 75 years old, having spent the last portion of her life in her native village of La-Plaine-du-Nord as a beggar—but still widely recognized as the subject of Durand's poem. ▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃

The last verse of the poem:

English- Young white fellow came around
Trim red beard on his pink face
Pocket watch and hair of silk
My troubles, he brought them all
My troubles, he brought them when
He found my pretty Choucoune (Chorus:) Spoke French words that made my Choucoune love him (2X)
Better forget this
The pain is too great
Choucoune left me here
Both my feet in chains
Better forget this
The pain is too great
Both my feet in chains

Kreyol- Yon ti blan vini rivé
Ti bab wouj, bèl figi woz
Mont sou koté, bel chévé
Malè mwen, li ki lakoz

Malè mwen, li ki lakoz
Li trouvé choukoun joli (Chorus:) Li palé fransé, Choukoun renmen li(x2)
Pito bliyé sa
Sé two gran lapen
Choukoun kité mwen
Dé pyé mwen nan chen
Pito bliyé sa
Sé two gran lapen
Dé pyé mwen nan chen

  •   k_vladinov While better environmental laws might have prevented some of this from happening I think a lack of energy has more to do with it than anything 16h
  •   _kingdomseeker_ Why is the DR looj so green yet HT look like this?? It confusing me 16h
  •   murielleclervil There was a time this beautiful island was ONE.. 16h
  •   nikkii1920 It can be that way again. We just have to have better protection 16h
  •   davideaux @laccstar not good 15h
  •   talktomyfro Creation of water access and also alternative means of energy supply can have a huge impact. but most importantly educating the people on the long term affects preserving the natural environment @macdharmonik seems to be working on this with @eclathaiti which is a great move ! 15h
  •   laccstar Photoshop @davideaux 13h
  •   magda_jd We can do this. We really can get this done. We as the diaspora can really make "it" happen for Haiti. As a Haitian American I am in to the idea revitalizing the Haitian education system. I just don't know where to begin other than taking certification exams in Haitian Creole and esl courses. I will take any suggestions regarding direction. I'm happy to have found your page. 12h

mrswanda On April 16th 2015 Dlo Pou Viv launched its WASH program at Ecole Mixte Communautaire de Blanchard located in La Plaine, Haiti. WASH is an acronym standing for Water Sanitation and Hygiene Education. Dlo Pou Viv promotes this program to accelerate equitable and sustain access to, and use of, safe water and basic sanitation services. This will improve personal hygiene within the students of the school, and help to increase total hours spent in school. #Lunionsuite #Haitian #Education #WashProgram #Ecole #Haiti #HaitiNews #Haitian #Educator #Hope #Service #Haitianbusiness 21h
