Video: Saved from the Rubble in Haiti

Here is an interesting interview with Gerald and Wenson, who helped to rescue Christa Brelsford after a house in Darbonne collapsed on her during the earthquake. Christa Brelsford lost part of her leg, but we're glad she's doing so well. She and her family are also turning this loss into a chance to help people in Haiti. We (Haiti Partners) admire how Christa and her family have handled this -- and we're grateful for the chance to partner with them through Christa's Angels Fund to support education in Darbonne.
