Moments of Haiti

June 1, 2011 - 12:35

As I am preparing to travel to Haiti, and to help lead a team of some of the most willing volunteers I have ever spoken with... I have been looking back over the past year in photos.

I would like to share some of my favorite photos with you. If you mouse over them, each has a description.

As a Habitat staff person, I am spoiled. I have access to the best face of our work; I see the small steps captured in each photo that doesn't make it into our publications. I see the tremendous "behind the scenes" commitment of Habitat staff members who have relocated and paused their lives in order to help Haiti clean up, recover and move forward. I see multiple expressions of devastation, determination, confusion, victory and hope.

As a volunteer, I feel honored to be able to help a tiny bit on the ground. I know that I will also face overwhelming need, and will not want to have arrived empty-handed.

Please help support Haiti. It takes such a small amount of time to donate. And yet supports such a massive effort. Give what you can. Every little bit helps.
