Compassion’s Tim Glenn live from Haiti

With the relentless barrage of information about the recent earthquakes in Haiti we can feel overwhelmed and it’s hard to know just what we can do to make a dent in what seems to be an impossible situation.

Thankfully organisations such as Compassion are turning our dollars into practical help on the ground in Haiti.

Tim Glenn is the Director of Child Advocacy for Compassion in the US. He is currently in Haiti helping with the urgent relief effort. This morning during my radio programme on 98.5 Sonshine FM I spoke to Tim about the current situation.

  • Thanks Shona.

    After seeing Compassion’s work first hand, it’s not hard to help direct people towards getting involved.

    Even though I was only in Haiti for a couple of days I saw enough to convince me that there was great need there even before the quake and that Compassion has been making a significant difference.

    It was only that Compassion is held in such high regard in Haiti that the group surrounding our vehicles on the way to the airport agreed to let us pass. I dread to think what might have happened to us if the ever growing crowd didn’t know that we were with Compassion.

    • Thanks for letting me know Anitra.

      I think that after Compassion mentioned the interview via Twitter and on their blog we got some fairly high traffic. Things should be working again now.
