January 12 2011 - Freedom releases a new Kreyol track "Kenbe La" and the Drumma Boy Remix of "Move On".
Drumma Boy remixes Freedom's hit single "Move On" to mark the one year anniversary of the earthquake. Drumma Boy has produced countless hits for artists such as Usher, Gucci Mane, Wiz Khalifa, Young Jeezy, Kanye West and many more. Freedom decided to collaborate with Drumma Boy to remember those we lost in the tragic earthquake that struck Haiti one year ago. Freedom and Drumma Boy are said to be working on more upcoming hits.
Freedom also releases a brand new Kreyol track for the one year anniversary of the earthquake. "Kenbe La" which means "hold on" in Kreyol was written by Freedom to inspire his people and give them strength to hang on tight because times will get better soon. "Kenbe La" is dedicated to all the people still living in tents one year after the devastating earthquake.
To support Haiti, please remember to buy "Move On" on .

Tuesday 19 January 2010 - Sasha Kramer sent a message to Freedom and the members of Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL).
This afternoon, feeling helpless, we decided to take a van down to Champs Mars (the area around the palace) to look for people needing medical care to bring to Matthew 25, the guesthouse where we are staying which has been transformed into a field hospital. Since we arrived in Port au Prince everyone has told us that you cannot go into the area around the palace because of violence and insecurity. I was in awe as we walked into downtown, among the flattened buildings , in the shadow of the fallen palace, amongst the swarms of displaced people there was calm and solidarity. We wound our way through the camp asking for injured people who needed to get to the hospital. Despite everyone telling us that as soon as we did this we would be mobbed by people, I was amazed as we approached each tent people gently pointed us towards their neighbors, guiding us to those who were suffering the most. We picked up 5 badly injured people and drove towards an area where Ellie and Berto had passed a woman earlier. When they saw her she was lying on the side of the road with a broken leg screaming for help, as they were on foot they could not help her at the time so we went back to try to find her. Incredibly we found her relatively quickly at the top of a hill of shattered houses. The sun was setting and the community helped to carry her down the hill on a refrigerator door, tough looking guys smiled in our direction calling out “bonswa Cherie” and “kouraj”.
When we got back to Matthew 25 it was dark and we carried the patients back into the soccer field/tent village/hospital where the team of doctors had been working tirelessly all day. Although they had officially closed down for the evening, they agreed to see the patients we had brought. Once our patients were settled in we came back into the house to find the doctors amputating a foot on the dining room table. The patient lay calmly, awake but far away under the fog of ketamine. Half way through the surgery we heard a clamor outside and ran out to see what it was. A large yellow truck was parked in front of the gate and rapidly unloading hundreds of bags of food over our fence, the hungry crowd had already begun to gather and in the dark it was hard to decide how to best distribute the food. Knowing that we could not sleep in the house with all of this food and so many starving people in the neighborhood, our friend Amber (who is experienced in food distribution) snapped into action and began to get everyone in the crowd into a line that stretched down the road. We braced ourselves for the fighting that we had heard would come but in a miraculous display of restraint and compassion people lined up to get the food and one by one the bags were handed out without a single serious incident.
During the food distribution the doctors called to see if anyone could help to bury the amputated leg in the backyard. As I have no experience with food distribution I offered to help with the leg. I went into the back with Ellie and Berto and we dug a hole and placed the leg in it, covering it with soil and cement rubble. By the time we got back into the house the food had all been distributed and the patient Anderson was waking up. The doctors asked for a translator so I went and sat by his stretcher explaining to him that the surgery had gone well and he was going to live. His family had gone home so he was alone so Ellie and I took turns sitting with him as he came out from under the drugs. I sat and talked to Anderson for hours as he drifted in and out of consciousness. At one point one of the Haitian men working at the hospital came in and leaned over Anderson and said to him in kreyol “listen man even if your family could not be here tonight we want you to know that everyone here loves you, we are all your brothers and sisters”. Cat and I have barely shed a tear through all of this, the sky could fall and we would not bat an eye, but when I told her this story this morning the tears just began rolling down her face, as they are mine as I am writing this. Sometimes it is the kindness and not the horror that can break the numbness that we are all lost in right now.
So, don’t believe Anderson Cooper when he says that Haiti is a hotbed for violence and riots, it is just not the case. In the darkest of times, Haiti has proven to be a country of brave, resilient and kind people and it is that behavior that is far more prevalent than the isolated incidents of violence. Please pass this on to as many people as you can so that they can see the light of Haiti, cutting through the darkness, the light that will heal this nation.
We are safe. We love you all and I will write again when I can. Thank you for your generosity and compassion.
With love from Port au Prince,
Saturday 16 January 2010 - Freedom planning trip to Haiti
Freedom will travel to Haiti to assist in the humanitarian efforts. He will be bringing with him Doctor’s masks that will allow people to walk around Port-au-Prince with the growing smell and dust. He will also be bringing medical supplies, portable water filters and crankable flashlights that people would be able to use at all times with manual power. With the situation deteriorating, these items will be essencial in the recovery of this country.
Saturday 16 January 2010 - Haiti needs your help!
There are many ways that you can donate to assist in Haiti’s relief. Text donations are the easiest way to help out. Through the Yele foundation, in the U.S. you can text “Yele” to 501501 to donate $5 to help Haiti. In Canada, through the Salvation Army, you can text “Haiti” to 90999 to donate $5. There are other charities that are taking donations for the cause such as the Red Cross. Food and Clothing drives are being held across the United States, specifically in New York and Miami if you live in the area. The people in Haiti need more than money to get out of their situation. There are people still stuck under the rubble of collapsed buildings and they cannot be rescued because of the lack of equipment to create pathways. There is international help on the way to Haiti but it can’t get there soon enough. Time is of the essence!!! Save Haiti Today by making a donation of some sort, monetary, medical supplies, food, water, tents and clothes.
