Remedor Fritzner

Director, Cité Soleil

Remedor Fritzner is on a mission to keep hope alive in Haiti. An activist in Cité Soleil, he walks the streets of this poverty-stricken area daily breaking up fights, feeding hungry children and organizing development initiatives for his community.

Though Robinson has been afforded an education and access to external resources, he doesn’t dream of abandoning his country for self-gain in the U.S. or Canada. Instead, he chooses to tough it out in the place where he was born and raised, alongside his fellow Haitians. To him, it makes more sense to invest in Haiti, in ways that will allow Haitians to be self-sufficient, healthy and happy.
