Report on Haiti after the Earthquake April 16, 2010

Representing Rotary, two members of the Haiti Team, Jim Kushner (Past President of Inwood Rotary in Manhattan) and Andrea Shiffman (Comprehensive Disaster Response Services), describe their experiences as they help to ease the incomprehensible suffering after the Earthquake: a man digging for his wife and baby for three days, women gang-raped because of lawlessness and lack of security, amputations. A temporary breakdown among some staff members after witnessing horrific situations was not unusual. However, Ms. Shiffman’s words are a tribute to all humanitarians when she says: “…nothing can overcome the willpower and tenacity of people who are determined to help.” In addition to the Podcast you can learn more about this expedition from a YouTube video (see first link under “Learn More.”
