Inside Mitch Albom’s Escape From Haiti

Over the past several weeks, Haiti has fallen into chaos as rebel groups and militia have risen to power. A group of American volunteers with the Have Faith Orphanage found themselves stranded in Port-au-Prince, with nearby ports being shut down by armed gangs.

Best-selling author Mitch Albom was part of that volunteer group. He shares the harrowing story of his rescue and discusses the evacuation efforts of Rep. Cory Mills (R-FL) which helped save their lives. Mitch details the violence to which innocent Haitians are being exposed and emphasizes the need for America to get involved.
