Haiti Stands Up - Ayiti leve kanpe
A beautiful and exquisitely hand-stitched expression of hope!
A woman at the center of the quilt represents the undaunted determination of Haitian women to help their country rise and endure. Dressed in the colors of the Haitian flag, with the word 'union' written on her sash, she climbs a ladder next to trees, birds and flowers under the watchful Haitian sun.
