Meet the Cooks - Part 3

This is the last of the Kitchen staff. My mom said maybe next week I can interview the gate-guys and post that too.

Above is Lumen. She has been working for Lifeline for a very long time she said. She was born in La Digue. Her family, the Williams family - is one of the bigger families in the village. She has five kids and has never had a child die. She is 36 years old. Her mom died early this year, she still wears black every day. She is more of a substitute cook, she is not always needed in the canteen. She comes to our house for an hour each day and sweeps. (She is with Hope in the photo.) She is also the cook we hire for when teams come and want to have a Haitian meal. She is great at making the teams a nice meal, and she gets to make extra money to do it so she really likes that.

This is Mirmose. She has worked here 3 years and lived here 8 years. She lives with a man that is our day-time gate guy. They have not saved enough to get married but they want to sometime. She is 22 and has never had a child.

This is Sonia, She came to work here November 6, 2003. She came to live here in 2003 too.
She has 5 living kids. One has died. She is 30 years old. She is in charge of the Sun oven that makes the bread each day.

Marie Irose has worked her for one year. She has lived her 11 years. She has 3 children.
She is 27 years old.

This Is Rosema, she has worked her for 1 year. She was born in La Digue. She has 1 child.
She is 25 years old.
That is it from the ladies in the kitchen!
