Help us,” she says.

Julie, who says she works various odd jobs, says she is ready to do her best to save in order to honor the payment of the deposit allowing her to benefit from social housing. “I have been seeking refuge in centers since the 1980s. And nothing has changed since then. I am anxious at the news of a cyclone. Mo per parski mo pa kone akot mo pou al kasiet pou sov mo lavi ek lavi mo bann zanfan,” explains Julie. The latter also specifies that two of her five children are minors. They are, according to our speaker, 16 years old and 13 years old respectively.
