As they hit the one-week mark since New Hampshire nurse Alix Dorsainvil and her daughter were kidnapped from their campus near Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Christian education ministry, El Roi Haiti, said they have been aching and praying through tears for the release of their founder’s wife and daughter.


“We are at the one-week mark of Alix and her daughter’s kidnapping. Many tears have been shed this week but we, together with our team, are working and praying continuously to bring them home safely, and we continue to hold onto hope,” the ministry said in a statement Thursday about their nurse who was kidnapped on July 27.

Alix Dorsainvil married El Roi Haiti founder Sandro Dorsainvil in 2021 after she began her role as a school nurse with the organization in 2020. She is also a committed Christian who has been traveling to Haiti since 2010 and is described by the ministry as someone who “lives a life following in the footsteps of Jesus.”

Witnesses told The Associated Press that the New Hampshire nurse was busy caring for patients in a small brick clinic when armed men ambushed the site and took her captive.
