Full Name MiKencia Laguerre
Location Jérémie, Haiti
MiKencia and her brother, Wootchy, live at the Hopestart Children's Home in Jérémie, Haiti.
MiKencia’s father died, and MiKencia was living with her mother. Sadly, her mother hired her out as a live-in house worker where she was exploited as a child laborer, receiving no education whatsoever. A nurse at the local hospital heard about MiKencia’s situation and arranged to have her removed from the home where she was working and placed at the Hopestart Children's Home, which welcomed her with open arms.
MiKencia loves to help with the care of the younger children at the orphanage. She is in good health.
