Les Cayes is a city situated in southwestern part of Haiti with approximately a distance of 194 kilometers from Port-au-Prince. The city was created in 1503 by Nicolas Ovando. Les Cayes is estimated to have a population at close to132,000 people making it the third largest city of the country. It is one of Haiti’s major ports. Its export trade concentrates largely on coffee and sugarcane, and is the world’s largest supplier of the vetiver plant, a major ingredient for manufacturing of airplane fuel, perfume and fragrance, at 250 tons annually. Les Cayes is also known for its seafood, lime, pepper, mangoes, bananas, coconut, bananas and timber exports.
However, similarly to the other nine cities in Haiti, the majority of its inhabitants have serious problems as a result of living in poverty, severely affected by hunger, and limited or no access to medical care. Until now. The future is bright.
