Seremoni Fineray pou Elie – Funeral ceremony of our comrade Jean-Louis [Elie] Joseph

Today 5th July 2015 members of CHAL and all the residents and friends of Camps Acra & Adoquin came together to honour and say goodbye to our comrade, Haitian warrior, Elie Jean-Louis Joseph who transitioned on 11th June 2015.   Elie was loved and well known across Port-au-Prince in all neighborhoods and camps and beyond in cities across Haiti; this was reflected in the huge numbers of people that came to pay their respects.

Solidarity

At the end we all are alone except for those with whom we broke our daily bread, wiped our daily sweat,  spoke our daily words, shared our daily fears and laughter!
