Once There Was A Country: Revisiting Haiti, a film by noted
philanthropist and Miami local, Kimberly Green. Green is

"It was not until I first traveled to Haiti in 2001 that I
learned of the incredible struggles and hardships that the people
of Haiti, our neighbors, face every day," said Green. "I knew
immediately that these were stories that needed to be told. I am
grateful to the team at the Miami PBS station for creating an
opportunity to further raise awareness of the crisis in Haiti.
When viewers watch Once There Was A Country: Revisiting Haiti, it
is my hope that they too will be moved and inspired to join me in
trying to make a difference."
