Haiti REVISITED

In 2014, Soledad O’Brien traveled to Haiti with AARP to document the relief efforts following the devastating earthquake that leveled the country in 2010. What she found was an overwhelming need for assistance. The number of dead approached 300,000, with another 1 million displaced. An estimated 200,000 older Haitians were living on the street. O’Brien and Starfish Media Group documented AARP’s partnership with HelpAge International to put people on the ground, provide doctors with critical medical supplies, and recruit volunteers who helped coordinate feeding, provide care, and establish shelters.
