Saving Jimani: Life and Death in the Haiti Earthquake by Rene Steinhauer


Steinhauer horrifyingly recites the devastating carnage of the Haiti earthquake and of the countless victims affected. The unbelievable suffering the Haitians endured is absolutely halting, it’s shocking and will touch the reader beyond belief. The limited and unavailable supplies and resources the volunteers encountered leave you speechless. With the turn of every page, I found the carnage and obstacles unimaginable leaving me lost in sheer disbelief. A distressing read, however challenging, a story all should take note. The victims and volunteers both sacrifice in countless ways, a toll mentally, physically and emotionally for all involved. Natural disasters wreak havoc long after the catastrophic event subsides, an event lingering in the minds and hearts of those caught in its brutal hub. By far one of the most difficult memoirs I have read in quite a while. A disaster even the most seasoned of relief workers wrestled with, powerful story told from the compassionate, caring voice of Rene Steinhauer.
