Two weeks before the earthquake that devastated Haiti one year ago today, FADER photo editor John Francis Peters was there with Suite903′s Judnick Mayard. Peters came back from that trip, which you can read about here, with a collection of images and experiences that took on a new significance after the disaster. Early last year in Brooklyn, he used those photos to raise funds for Hospital Albert Schweitzer in the Artibonite River Valley. They asked him to return this year to visit their new Hanger Clinic which works with disabled Haitians on rehabilitation and fitting for new prosthetics. He did, in July, and spent time with just a few people of the thousands affected. See more photos photos from that return visit here. Today still, l’union fait la force.
