OUR TEAM - HAITI
Directors of Family Care Haiti
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. Growing up, Fritz lived with his mother in Cite Soleil, the largest slum in the Western Hemisphere. Surrounded by hopelessness and despair, God began to work in Fritz’s life birthing compassion for orphans. As a young man, he successfully oversaw the day-to-day operations of the 50-child orphanage. In 2008. Fritz and Magalie were married and became united in their commitment to rescue abandoned children. Once again, God was facilitating Fritz to help the starving children of Haiti. The first and primary passion of Fritz and Magalie is to teach and show the love of Jesus Christ and bring orphan children of Haiti to a saving knowledge of the Lord.
