Haiti after the earthquake
On January 12, 2010 a massive earthquake laid waste to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, killing hundreds of thousands of people. Within three days, Dr. Paul Farmer arrived in the Haitian capital, along with a team of volunteers, to lend his services to the injured. He joins us to discuss his experiences and his newest book, Haiti After the Earthquake.
