Format: Kindle Edition
Michael Andrew's "3 Weeks In Haiti" is not just an autobiographical recounting of his time as a private-citizen volunteer during the disaster relief effort in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti: While it IS a revealing story of one idealist's often frustrating efforts to participate in the recovery and rehabilitation of the earthquakes victims, indirectly it serves as an indictment of the haphazard efforts to provide aid and assistance by the bureaucracies of international aid agencies, the American Military in-country technical advisors, and the government of the stricken country itself. Michael's narrative of the early days of his efforts to participate in the larger relief program belies his growing frustration with officialdom and the key individuals in charge of the operation. The author gradually unwinds the process by which he formulated his own solution to locating and assessing the material and funding needs of Haitian-run orphanages that slipped through the cracks. The author's plain-spoken language and unadorned expository style admirably spotlights the good work he and his network of American volunteers and Haitian on-site workers did on behalf of Haiti's oft-neglected orphans. The narrative is occasionally punctuated with the author's philosophical insights about service to our fellow man, the motives of his fellow relief workers, and the whole "schtick" of being a stranger in a strange land. The author's honest altruism and missionary spirit may be troubling for the more cynical readers among us, but taken as a whole and considered within the context of this horrific event in a long-suffering country's history, it rings true every time.

Michael Andrew shows what compassion really is. He chose to provide his skill, knowledge and brute strength to help the people of Haiti.

This book teaches about relationships, adversity, and determination. He's taken his skills learned in Haiti, Japan, southeast United States, and now in the Philippines to work with the Red Cross and other local organizations to streamline the supply chain of aide and relief.

Very good read for uplifting stories as well as effective tactical relief methods and essential gear.
