Since the immediate hours following Haiti's deadly earthquake, Mercy Corps correspondents have been reporting on our work, what they're experiencing and those we're helping. Over the last year, we've had 40 bloggers keeping us up to date on the latest developments, challenges, successes and stories from the field. In all, there have been more than 160 blog entries. Here are just a few that we'd like to highlight:

"Today I'm living another way", a descriptive and stirring autobiographical piece by Guivens Cemervil, who works for our youth program in Haiti.


"Training to help children heal — a healing process in itself" by Fabiola Coupet, our Communications Officer in Haiti. A powerful blog entry about survival and new beginnings.


"Testing Out Mobile Money in Haiti" by Economic Recovery Program Manager Kokoévi Sossouvi, which describes an innovation that will help families and revitalize local economies.


"Celebration a success in Haiti" by Dan Barthmaier — Mercy Corps' Food for Peace Manager in Haiti — in which he discusses a voucher system to deliver desperately-needed food aid to families.


"Spending Thanksgiving in Haiti" by Public Information Officer Lisa Hoashi, a blog entry that finds Lisa spending her holiday amid efforts to curb a cholera epidemic.
