Less than a year ago 26 year old Andres Farfan fulfilled a dream when he received a degree from the University of Florida with a major in photojournalism. His love for taking pictures took on an added dimension when he had the opportunity to travel to Haiti with a non-profit organization taking care of orphan refugees. It’s been just over a year since the 7.0 magnitude earthquake killed more 200-thousand people and left 300-thousand injured. Nearly a million people ended up in tent cities. Farfan talked with WUFT-FM’s Donna Green-Townsend about the trip sponsored by the group 62kids. (To see some of the pictures taken of the 62 orphans living in the tent near Jacmel, Haiti and to find out more about the not-for-profit organization trying to help them, go online to 62kids.org or you can see a gallery of the pictures on Andres Farfan’s webpage at Farfanphoto.com.)[audio:http://www.wuft.org/media/audio/FPHaitiQAdgtlong51311.mp3]
The Ivano-Frankivsk Church of Christ in western Ukraine was asking for help. Fellow Ukrainians and churchgoers in Gaineville wanted to help but didn’t have the resources.
