Aid worker and Children’s Hope founder Leisa Faulkner describes her experiences working in Haiti following the quake in an interview with Sacramento News & Review. Her comments include a familiar refrain from aid and relief workers:
“There is no security threat from the Haitian people. Aid workers do not need to fear them. I would really like for the guys with the rifles to put them down and pick up shovels to help find people still buried in the rubble of collapsed buildings and homes.”
