Alix Dorsainvil from New Hampshire was working as the community nurse for El Roi Haiti, a humanitarian Christian ministry, when she and her child were abducted from their campus on July 27.

She is the wife of the group’s founder, Sandro Dorsainvil. They were released on Aug. 8, according to a statement by El Roi Haiti on Aug. 10.
