Respire Haiti

Respire Haiti was founded by 24 year old Megan Boudreaux. After previously visiting Gressier only one time before for 45 minutes, God began working in her heart. Later, when she returned to the United States, He began to pull her heart back towards Gressier and its children. In December of 2010, God gave Megan a vision for this community and their children. With so many children not attending school and so many families struggling to provide for their kids, she moved to Gressier permanently in January of 2011 and began helping the children and people of Gressier.
