Edouard.jpgAs part of Compassion Day I spoke to Edouard Lassegue during my morning radio programme on 98.5 Sonshine FM today. Edouard is Compassion’s Vice President, Latin America and Caribbean Region.

Edouard was in Haiti with our Australian team last month when we had to exit the country rather quickly as rioting and looting took hold in Port-au-Prince. It was a nervous experience for us but millions of children are still caught in that situation. I asked Edouard to give us a quick understanding of what brought about the riots that caused our quick departure from Haiti.

When we made our somewhat risky trip to the airport to leave Haiti, Edouard was the one who stepped out of the safety of our vehicles to try to find a way forward. He’s a very brave man who quite possibly saved our lives.

I really want you to listen to his heart for those experiencing desperate poverty in his home country. Edouard is Haitian and was once the Compassion Country Director for Compassion.
