Little Footprints Big Steps co-founder and Head of Haiti Operations, had access to the internet on Sunday for the first time since the hurricane struck. Here is her post, photo from Jeremie/Grand Anse area:Overnight, the community and region I love so dearly was transformed from a lush, thriving source of promise... to a war zone. What once felt like home feels like a strange, disheartened land of destruction. Entire communities' homes have been wiped out; people have lost all that they own and their livelihoods; hundreds of people have died. And yet – most are survivors. Despite losing everything, here they are: working to help others, beginning to put together pieces of their lives and rebuild. While aid organizations claiming to have prepared for the disaster remained inactive, locals were beginning to piece together what they could. Haitians are so strong. So incredibly strong. Yet, even more painful to see than the physical damage, is the trauma and pain in everyone's eyes. Many do not yet see hope.
