It is one thing looking looking at photos of Chauffard but its certainly another thing actually being there and experiencing it for yourself. However, its not always possible to visit a place to see what its really like. Here we have made several videos with narration to help you gain a better understanding of life in Chauffard and the work of Haiti in our Hands.
