Haiti Partners in national media

January 29, 2010

Here are two different interviews I (Kent) have done with national media about our response in Haiti.  Both shows approached the subject with a lot of respect. I recommend them for these Haiti stories — and also as two great shows when they’re doing other stories. Links here:

First, a 10-minute clip on Canadian national TV with George Stroumboulopoulos on “The Hour.” George asks about the work, about Pat Robertson, and other good questions:   http://www.cbc.ca/video/#/Shows/The_Hour/ID=1396404451

Second, a 12-minute radio interview (player at the bottom of the page after you click on the link) on NPR’s “The Story” that also includes a couple of interviews with friends in Port-au-Prince. The segment on Haiti Partners is the first 12 minutes of the hour-long show:  http://thestory.org/archive/the_story_959_Haiti_Partners_.mp3/view

Each of these interviews include new footage and interviews from Haiti after the earthquake.

Day 9

January 23, 2010

Sorry for the terrible quality. It was 3 am in the morning following day 9 after the quake (January 21). I (John Engle) was trying not to wake people up and I was shining a flashlight on my face even as I filmed myself. Not pretty and not loud enough but the summary and reflections are there if you have time and energy. Thank you for your interest!

Kent in Darbonne with family and church

I (Kent) was just interviewed on “100 Huntley Street,” a national TV show in Canada. I’m in Toronto for a Haiti Partners event with Tony Campolo on Sunday evening (for details, see www.haitipartners.ca) that was scheduled 6 months ago.

Earlier this the week I traveled to Haiti to work with John, and we spent time in Darbonne, the town where two Haiti Partners schools collapsed and where my wife, Shelly, and I first lived when we moved to Haiti. It was wonderful to finally be with our “adopted family” after the earthquake–though heartbreaking to see their family homes ruined.

Haiti Partners is working hard to help in the Darbonne area. This two-part (20 minutes) video shares the story of getting back to this town after the earthquake.
