A kind-hearted widow, Doramise Moreau, has been providing over one thousand (1,000) people in Miami with meals weekly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 60-year-old widow lives with her children, grandchildren, and nephew, and works as a part-time janitor at a local technical school in Miami.
Moreau partnered with the Notre Dame d'Haiti Catholic Church to single-handedly cook thousands of meals a week for those deprived when the pandemic hit.
Her desire to feed the hungry goes back to her childhood days as she sneaked food from her parents' kitchen to give to those in need despite her mother's fury, she said.
"Sometimes, when you're looking at people in their face, they don't need to ask you. You can see they need something ... I told [my mother], 'You can whup me today, you can whup me tomorrow, but I'd still feed them,'' she recalled.
Years later, Moreau is still feeding the hungry. She uses the church truck to buy groceries, cook the food by herself every week and gives it out to those in need.
Moreau does not have a vehicle, so she walks or takes the bus to work and prepares at the end of the week to feed between 1,000 - 1,500 people every Saturday.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, every morning before work, Moreau lays out a table with hot teas and other homoeopathic remedies for church staff, police, and community leaders to inhale and drink to help strengthen their immune system, Reginald Jean-Mary, a pastor at the church said.
For Moreau's kind gestures, community leaders nominated her to receive a brand new car, a Toyota Corolla purchased by the Martin Luther King Economic Development Corporation through a grant, and Moreau will only have to pay $125 (N47,000) monthly for three years before she can own it.
Moreau believes that givers never lack, noting that she could keep all the money for herself and never give anyone a penny.
''But if you give from your heart and never think about yourself, God will provide for you every day. The refrigerator will never be without food," Moreau said.
