Summary A Haitian boy named Moses recounts surviving the 2004 flood that buried much of Gonaives, Haiti, where he was born, and describes his life at St. Helene Children's Village near Port-au-Prince, which has become a source of life to many more children in the wake of the 2010 earthquake that destroyed Port-au-Prince and a following hurricane.
