It was October 2016. Two weeks earlier, Hurricane Matthew had slammed across the Southern Peninsula of Haiti with 140 mile-an-hour and 44 inches of rain. When I checked into the small hotel in Port-au-Prince where I’d spend the first night before going out to the countryside, I discovered that a team of early responders from the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) was staying there as well. That evening, we gathered at a poolside table and discussed what we’d come to do. Read more about that here, in the Olbios Network For Social Action International Journal.
