Miracle On Voodoo Mountainby Megan Boudreaux
About the Resource:
Miracle on Voodoo Mountain is the inspirational memoir of an accomplished and driven twenty-four-year-old who quit her job, sold everything and moved to Haiti alone – all without a clear plan of action. Megan Boudreaux had visited Haiti on a few humanitarian trips, but each trip multiplied her sense that someone needed to address the devastation – especially as it affected the children, many of whom were kept as household slaves on the poverty-stricken and earthquake-wrecked Caribbean island.
Three years later – on the former site of voodoo worship in Gressier – six acres atop Bellevue Mountain are home to the nonprofit Respire Haiti. Many still come to the area to make animal sacrifices, but Megan and her staff of nearly two hundred are transforming this community as they educate, feed and address the needs.
