John Hancock, HODR volunteer, was featured on the NBC Nightly News ‘Making a Difference’ segment for his work with HODR. John is part of the team that launched our volunteer project in Gonaives, Haiti, in response to Hurricane Ike and a string of other tropical storms and hurricanes that hit the country during the fall of 2008. John dedicated the previous year to HODR, volunteering in Peru, Bangladesh and Iowa, on our assessment in China, and here, in Haiti.
“We have to take something that is so ridiculously large and impossible to deal with, and break it down into something you can do in one day, in one hour,” Hancock said. “You can clean up a whole community like that.”
