Haitian Footsoldier documents the heart-rending and ultimately triumphant story of a man whose life is inextricably entwined with the fate of his homeland. Jonas was born in Haiti in 1981, his early childhood marked by poverty and violent political unrest. Adopted by an Australian couple, he found himself transplanted to Ballarat, where he struggled with the trauma of his childhood and his feeling of not belonging. He fought a bitter battle with drugs and alcohol, until the birth of his son Maliq gave him the sense of family and belonging he’d lost years before.
Inspired by the power of his relationship with his new son, Jonas reconnected with his adoptive parents and his birth-mother in Haiti and from there embarked on an inspiring journey.
In 2010 an already-struggling Haiti was struck by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake, resulting in the reported deaths of 350 000 people. A Cholera pandemic claimed more lives in the wake of the disaster, and political instability and insufficient infrastructure have left the Haitian people struggling with day-to-day existence. Four out of five people in Haiti live in poverty; 50% in abject poverty.
Haitian Footsoldier follows Jonas on his journey back to Haiti, with his wife and three children at his side. Taking his decade-long experience in the construction industry with him, Jonas is investing his time, money, and energy to organise building projects that can quickly provide safe housing. His team is planning to develop sustainable goat farms, internet cafes, and tourist operations, which will provide employment and economic development.
Jonas’s journey is a deeply personal one – he is a man striving to build a stable family from the chaos of his childhood. But it’s also a universal story of identity, responsibility, and the need to belong. His journey is about our connection to other people and our responsibility to the world we live in; it’s about the possibility of hope; and the divide between first world affluence and third world poverty. Jonas Rasmussen is an ordinary bloke who has become an extraordinary agent of change.
