Mercetaine’s journey began in 1991 when she landed in Florida after four days at sea. She boarded a boat from Haiti just before the election of President Jean Bertrand Aristede. A year later, the infamous military coup set an international refugee crisis in motion. Nearly three-quarters of the 40,000 people who fled were eventually returned to Haiti.
ASC Ethiopia is celebrating 10 years of service and has accomplished so much in that time. We are so proud of the accomplishments and have an eye towards a bright future.
