NEW YORK — Megan Boudreaux had visited Haiti before on short-term business and missions trips, but never did she imagine that God would call her to permanently abandon a comfortable life in the U.S. for a bare-bones one in a third-world country plagued by poverty and child slavery and that was just starting to climb its way out of a devastating earthquake.
Boudreaux visited Haiti in 2010, at the age of 24, at the behest of her employer. It was her second visit to the Caribbean island that just months prior had been rocked by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake.
The earthquake struck Jan. 12, killing anywhere from 230,000-316,000 people, according to CNN. More than a million residents were displaced, with tens of thousands more remaining in that situation today. In addition, nearly 25 percent of Haiti's schools were destroyed or damaged by the quake, the epicenter of which was just 15 miles from the capital Port-au-Prince. more >>
