Family Care Haiti was founded by Fritz and Magalie Desir in 2013. Fritz was born in Port-au-Prince and was raised in Port-a-Prince and Jacmel, Haiti. He lived with his mother and step-father until the age of 9 at which time he moved to Jacmel to live with his grandmother. He returned to Port-a-Prince 6 years later with his mother to live in Cite Soleil, one of the most poverty-stricken slums in the entire world.
Surrounded by hopelessness and despair, God began to work in Fritz’s life birthing a compassion for orphans. As a young man, Fritz moved to Delmas section of Port-au-Prince to live with his cousin and start his adult life. He worked his way through school and successfully completed his high school program.
