When Mackenson came to us at Be Like Brit, his aunt and grandfather had walked with him some six hours, down from the mountains far behind and above our site in Grand-Goâve. Upon seeing him, it was immediately clear that he was in need of medical attention. Having lost his father in the 2010 quake 4 months before he was born, and having lost his mother just last year, Mackenson and his extended family were desperate for help.While we normally require 24 hours to decide on each case, without hesitation we accepted Mackenson in to the program at Be Like Brit. He’s been quiet at times, yet so full of life at others. We know before long he will feel safe, secure, and comfortable in his new home.
