While the initial Haiti Orphan Relief Team (HORT) assessment group was in Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas recently, the World Orphans members of the team shot daily video blogs. Unfortunately our Internet connection in Haiti was less-than-desirable and we were unable to upload the videos while in country. I'll therefore be posting these daily for the next ten days or so. They'll give you a "moving" experience of what we saw there, in the aftermath of the worst natural disaster any nation has seen in recent history.
As you view the whole series of videos, you'll see some pretty unsettling stuff.
But you'll also see the hope and resiliency of the people and the churches that stand ready to help.
Check back each day and forward to friends. Please don't forget about Haiti. These are the images of today, the suffering of the present. Even though it has long left our news reports here in the U.S., the people are left waiting . . . and hoping, for YOU to help.
Here is the first one:
