In the United States, new cases of COVID-19 are surging, recording a daily record of more than 187,000 cases and inching closer to 260,000 deaths. That crisis however does not predict a similar surge in Haiti, said Dr. Jean William Pape, director of the GHESKIO network of health clinics in Haiti.

“I don’t think we will have a second wave,” Pape said. “We have reopened the airports, we have reopened the economy fully, we have reopened schools, and we have not seen an increase in cases.”

Whether made from an age-old family recipe or store-bought, the warmth of kremas’ sweetened milk, coconut aroma and cinnamon spice is sure to permeate many a household. And in a year filled with loss and anxiety, the eggnog-like beverage, spiked with Haitian rum or moonshine and strained to silky smoothness, will be a source of familiar comfort.

Immigrants in America have long added their own cuisine to Thanksgiving celebrations, and Haitians are no different. In some households, some embrace the American instructions that call for thawing, brining, baking, and dressing the whole turkey before serving.

Fifteen young women from the Restavek Freedom transitional home in Port-au-Prince were issued a challenge: use the power of their story to help end child slavery in Haiti. Together with Shout Mouse Press and some dedicated Haitian college students, the girls set out to write two illustrated children’s books that raise awareness about the system of restavek.

The books make a great gift! https://restavekfreedom.org/our-work/childrensbooks/

Odley, a Haitian-American actress raised in Brooklyn, found synergy in her character’s storyline. “I’m still dealing with not taking on too much, and being able to prioritize and get things done in a timely manner,” she tells Teen Vogue. “If you take on so much, you end up spiraling — that’s what Dom went through. And although she kept putting on a brave face and pushing through, it still broke her.”

In October, the media spotlight shone on Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett and her family of seven children during the judicial confirmation process. Among the children, the two adopted from Haiti — Vivian, 16, and John Peter, 13 — received the most scrutiny.

“In the past, anybody could come and adopt a child easily,” said Erick Pierre-Val, a Delmas, Port-au-Prince pastor who counsels parents on the adoption process. “Now, because of the Convention, [they] try to control the process because they care about human trafficking.”

Teenager Jimmy Telson was shot in the head as he rode in the backseat of a vehicle on Tuesday near Carrefour, Port-au-Prince. The 17-year-old later died at Notre-Dame Hospital.

His father Daniel Telson said he doesn’t know why his son was killed. As he grieves, Telson has little hope of the Haitian police catching his son’s killer.

“I cannot speak of justice,” Telson said on Radio Magik 9 on Thursday. “Justice? I don’t repeat these words in Haiti.”

"Jennica is a 12-year-old child who has been living in restavek for two years. The adults in her home were very physically and emotionally abusive. Jennica was skinny, shy, didn’t have self-esteem, and always wanted to stay by herself. Since she entered Restavek Freedom’s program one year ago, Jennica’s self-confidence is very improved, she can make eye contact, and she even occasionally participates in games or plays with the other children.

"Since she started receiving food kits for herself and her household four months ago, her treatment at home has improved. She doesn’t have dirty clothes anymore, she can safely speak to her “aunt” without fear, her workload in the home has reduced, and she can get enough sleep. The biggest change I see, though, is that her self-esteem has started to soar.

"Each time Jennica receives something from Restavek Freedom, she receives more positive attention in the house. When she received last month’s food kit, she said her aunt thanked her and kissed her. For that one week she didn’t have any responsibility in the house she was free to play and just be a child. Jennica was very happy and full of joy." – Frantso, Child Advocate

Her deep ties to the community — some cultivated since the early 1980s, others created during her last six years representing District 8 on the county commission — helped Levine Cava defeat her opponent by eight points on Nov. 3.
