"Mirlene Lamour, 33, was born in #Haiti, but moved with her family to the Dominican Republic as a teenager. She and her husband have 7 children, all born on Dominican soil — some literally on the soil, in a palmwood cabin on a farm outside Los Patos, a town in the Dominican southwest.

When @patrickwitty photographed Mirlene and her family, they were living in a makeshift home in Parc Cadeau, a settlement at the far southeastern tip of Haiti. #ParcCadeau had become large enough to split into 2 camps and permanent enough to produce community leaders, a wicker-walled church and a school.
