Some background on Haiti
What was the country like before the earthquake hit?January 14th, 2010 | by Chris Hufstader
We are privileged here at Oxfam America to have some photography from Haiti taken by photojournalist (and music producer) Jeff Antebi last year, so we are incorporating his images in an audio slide show on our web site. Please have a look and a listen, the images show how poor people are working to survive in Haiti, and the audio explains some of the particular challenges they face every day.
Recovering from Tuesday’s earthquake in Haiti will not be easy. We are going to have to take a hard look at what it will take to address the chronic level of pre-earthquake poverty in Haiti, instead of simply rebuilding what was already there.
Those inclined to help can contribute to our Haiti Earthquake Response Fund. If you have already donated, we thank you and ask you to share this url with others willing to help the people of Haiti:
