2017 thomazeau profile Thomazeau, pronounced Tom-ä-zō, is a city approximately 1½ hour drive northeast of Port-au-Prince. The area to the north of the city has a mountain range, which has lost all its forests and much of its topsoil. Farmers still try to grow crops, but many families go hungry due to lack of water and poor soil conditions. Hope for Haiti's Children's Hope Center is on 22 acres to the northwest of Thomazeau in the Debas section and includes an orphanage, mission house, a micro-farm, community water well, and a new Thomazeau Christian School with six classrooms.
