Volunteer Gena Heraty talks to Newstalk’s Sue Cahill about how Haiti is slowly bouncing back after the catastrophic earthquake 10 years ago. Gena tells Sue about the orphanage where she works is a beacon of hope in the hillside village of Kenscoff. Dedicated staff and volunteers provide a home for so many children; psycho-social services to children with disabilities; access to school; and advocating for the issue of disability rights. Gena, and the other volunteers from the Irish volunteer sending agency Viatores Christi provide a life-line to children abandoned simply because their families cannot afford to feed and take care of them. Original broadcast date: 27 June 2015.
