On June 4, there will be a special screening at Southside Works Cinema of a documentary about the ongoing efforts in Haiti to assist the poor and underserved to find ways to help themselves. It will prove to be quite a moving and beautiful expression of the spirit of the Haitian people and the passionist charism. Fr Enzo del Brocco and the Director Will Agee, will be at the theatre for the screening.
Fr Enzo was born and raised in Coraopolis and went to school at St Joseph’s in Coraopolis, and Our Lady of Fatima in Hopewell. He has been working with Fr Rick Frechette in Haiti since January 2014 and is currently Vice Provincial of St Paul of the Cross Province.

Located less than 1,000 miles from the U.S., Haiti is plagued by both political instability and natural disasters. 80% of the population lives below the poverty line, surviving on less than $2 a day. Access to healthcare is essentially non-existent. According to UNICEF, Haiti has the highest rate of infant, under-five and maternal mortality in the Western Hemisphere. The January 2010 earthquake caused an estimated 300,000 injuries, which exacerbated the limited healthcare services.
NPH USA is helping save thousands of lives through the support of St. Damien Pediatric Hospital, which provides over 80,000 services each year.
