Helping Hands Noramise is Being Featured in a Documentary Film by Bay of Rainbows Productions!

When documentary filmmakers Posie Currin and Nicole Vulcan, of Portland, Oregon-based Bay of Rainbows Productions, heard about Helping Hands Noramise, they just knew they had to document the work Rosedanie and the team are doing in Haiti.

On March 1, 2010 the women are flying to the Dominican Republic, along with Annie Jordan, and taking the bus on to Limbé, Haiti. Bringing camera gear, some meager personal provisions, and whatever supplies they can carry to help the people in Haiti, the crew is grateful for this chance to get involved.

March 24th: Update!

In March 2010, Bay of Rainbows’ Posie Currin and Nicole Vulcan, along with Annie Jordan, traveled to Limbé, Haiti to document the work of Washington state-based relief organization Helping Hands Noramise. The organization is working to restore sustainable agriculture, foster cultural arts and traditional trades, and improve basic infrastructure by working directly with groups and individuals in the town of Limbé.

Bay of Rainbows is in the shooting phase of this project, capturing the group’s efforts to tip the tenuous balance back in the town of Limbé and beyond. Stay tuned at for more on the production of this documentary work.
