Joseph Bataille, Haiti Country Director for World Relief - Episode 23 - on breaking patterns of dependency, helpful and hurtful ways of helping, and how to avoid compassion fatigue
Noah Filipiak interviews World Relief's Haiti Country Director, Joseph Bataille. Haiti was the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere before the 2010 earthquake and even more so after. All this despite millions and millions of dollars of international aid over the course of decades. Noah and Joseph have a "behind the curtain" conversation about how Haiti got in the spot its in, what World Relief is doing about it, and what we all can do about alleviating poverty in ways that work. Noah and Joseph also discuss the perils of compassion fatigue and how to avoid it.
