Reporting the Haiti earthquake; an audio montage

Portraits of fallen staff

The January 12th Haiti earthquake was one of the world’s biggest ever natural disasters.

The United Nations has had a long-term presence in the Caribbean and was quick to respond to the disaster.

This audio montage contains the voices of UN staff and special representatives in Haiti itself and elsewhere. The music “Haiti Volverá” or “Haiti Will Return” was composed by the Cuban pianist Chucho Valdez and donated to the people of Haiti, as well as the UN’s Food and Agricultural Organization.

In: Music…it was one of the most powerful quakes…
Out:  …we are working quickly, as fast as humanly possible.  Music

Dur: 3’48″
