Sherrine Petit Homme LaFrance was crying on the side of a road when China Laguerre spotted her.

Hurricane Dorian destroyed LaFrance’s newly constructed house in Great Abaco Island on the northern edge of the Bahamas the same night she moved in. That was on Sept. 1, 2019.

She then moved into a hotel offering free shelter in Nassau with her husband and 14-year-old son. But they were kicked out when staff found her son talking to guests.

She had nowhere to go. So Laguerre invited her to come stay at the home she shares with her parents and her brother.

Sherrine Petit Homme LaFrance is one of thousands of Haitians who lived in Abaco but were displaced to Nassau after the storm. The policy of the Haiti government is to keep evacuees off Abaco until power, water and housing is restored.
