SOIL's Leah Page Accepts the UNCCD Land for Life Award in Doha, Qatar
As regular readers of the SOIL blog will already know, SOIl was lucky enough to be awarded the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification’s Land for Life Award for our land rehabilitation projects in Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haitien.The award was officially presented last week in Doha, Qatar, and SOIL’s Development Director Leah Page flew out there to accept the award on our behalf.
A few weeks before the awards presentation, a filmmaker named John Liu paid the SOIL team in Haiti a visit, as well. He spent a few days venturing around with the SOILies in Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haitien, and has put together some really beautiful footage that we’d like to share with you. Below is a three minute video John put together about SOIL’s work, as well as some interviews with Leah in Doha during her official award acceptance trip. Enjoy!
