Video story of Haiti family – I worked to clear this home site with HODR @hodropsin

This was one of the home sites that I had the honor to help clear.  We were very fortunate to have Brian, a videographer, to document the project and Nancy, a native Creole speaker, along with us to translate, She was able to share with us the story of the collapse from the matriarch of the family.

With more than 250,000 homes and structures reduced to rubble, it is easy to dehumanize the process of clearing rebar and concrete.  Videos like this are invaluable in reminding us of the personal impact of those 37 seconds – and of the value to each family of our volunteer efforts.
