Illinois extends hope to Haitians


Hope for Haitians

It’s been more than a year since a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck Haiti. More than 2,200 people died, and some 12,500 people were injured. Hope for Haitians is a Northern Illinois charity helping people on the ground. The 21st discussed how Haiti is recovering with members of the Hope for Haitians aid group.
