American Christian Nurse and Her Daughter Freed After Being Kidnapped in Haiti

Published on

According to El Roi Haiti, American nurse Alix Dorsainvil and her daughter were released Wednesday, nearly two weeks after they were abducted in the capital of Haiti.

The Christian organization founded by Dorsainvil’s spouse requested that she and her family not be contacted: “There is still much to process and heal from in this situation,” the organization said in a statement.

The organization added that it confirmed the safe release “with a heart of gratitude and immense joy.”

No additional information was immediately available, including whether or not the ransom was paid.

Witnesses told The Associated Press that armed men abducted Dorsainvil and her daughter in late July from a clinic in a gang-controlled section of Port-au-Prince where Dorsainvil worked.

The Christian organization has provided medical care, education, and other essential services to people in the impoverished regions of the country.

Since the assassination of President Jovenel Mose in 2021, gang warfare has increased in Haiti.

Gang members routinely commit murder, rape, and hostage residents.

Since January, a local nonprofit has documented 539 kidnappings, a significant increase from previous years.

In a video posted on the El Roi Haiti website, Dorsainvil characterizes Haitians as “full of joy, life, and love,” describing them as fortunate individuals to have known.

El Roi Haiti stated in a blog post that Dorsainvil fell in love with the Haitian people during a visit to the Caribbean nation following the 2010 catastrophe.

Dorsainvil graduated from Regis College in Weston, Massachusetts, where a program supports nursing education in Haiti.
