This week is the second anniversary of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, and we'll be marking the occasion with a special broadcast on Wednesday, January 11 at 11:05 pm on CBC TV, in which we look at what has happened in the country since the disaster, and revisit George's trip to Port-Au-Prince and Jacmel last November as an Ambassador Against Hunger for the World Food Programme.

While visiting the country, George spent some time with Canadian film director Paul Haggis (Crash, In The Valley of Elah), whose organization Artists for Peace and Justice is working to help rebuild schools in Haiti.

Here's Paul talking about what impact a small NGO like his can have compared to what can be done by larger organizations to support the Haitian government's efforts to rebuild:
