This upcoming January marks the tenth anniversary of the massive earthquake in Haiti. It came on a Tuesday afternoon, 12 days into the new year, and destroyed or severely damaged a quarter of a million homes, killing more than 100,000 people. Eight months later, in September of 2010, I traveled to Haiti with several journalist colleagues to document the country’s slow recovery process. On today’s episode, I revisit my journey and some of the reporting I did, and I check in with Haitian freelance journalist Etant Dupain to see where things stand in Haiti today.
Visit my website to see some photos and videos I took during my trip and for a list of worthwhile organizations if you’d like to make a donation to help the Haitian people.
