Haiti: Two Years Later
January 13, 2012
Since the catastrophic 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck just outside Port-au-Prince, Haiti, killing an estimated 316,000 people at a rate of nearly 10,000 per second, two years ago, Assistant Professor of Sociology Janese Free has traveled to the country multiple times on mission and vision trips as a representative of her church.
Working in collaboration with World Relief, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to responding directly to the world's "most complex humanitarian crises," Dr. Free's congregation is making a 10-year commitment to help Haiti's recovery through rebuilding churches and communities, developing agro-business and creating jobs.
Watch the video to find out more about Dr. Free's visits to Haiti and the efforts being made to assist the country. Also, be on the look out for more about Dr. Free and her mission trips to Haiti in the upcoming winter 2012 issue of Emmanuel Magazine!
