Haitian groups in Miami serve up cheer over the holidays | PHOTOS


During December, Sant La, Miami Worker Center, and Fanm Saj — three organizations in Miami serving Haitians in the city — held celebrations that drew scores of Haitian families to enjoy each other’s company with music, dance and food. 

Christine King, the District 5 Commissioner, hosted a holiday gift giveaway at the Little Haiti Soccer Park with special guest, Future, an American rapper.

Here are some scenes from the events.
