"Sa je pa we ke pa tounen".  What the eye doesn't see, doesn't move the heart.  -Haitian proverb

Donna P. Williams is a professional commercial photographer specializing in documentary, editorial and portrait work. Humanitarian issues are the focus of her documentary photography.

Based in Atlanta since 1986, her background is in newspaper photography. She worked extensively with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (formerly Egleston Children’s Hospital and Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital) for more than ten years.

Since 2001, she has devoted her efforts to ServeHAITI (servehaiti.org) a 501 c3 documenting the work they do in the region of Grand-Bois, Haiti. One hundred percent of her profits from the sale of any work related to Haiti goes directly to support their efforts.

"The people in the region of Grand-Bois, Haiti, have been the focus of my documentary work since 2001. I have photographed the development of a health center in this remote mountain community located approximately 53 miles east of Port-au-Prince.

I am privileged to spend time with the families in their homes (made of sticks and bark from banana trees) and have traveled with them to the marketplace - walking the distance for more than an hour. I watch as they birth their children and I cry when they lose their children. I am humbled by their display of human dignity in the face of intolerable suffering. Their hope and resiliency have changed me forever.

Witnessing the tragedies that befall these kind people who live in extreme poverty, I have made it my duty to use my work in a way that will help bring about a better quality of life for them." DPW
