With many of Haiti's news outlets out of commission, the international media organization Internews is stepping in to produce daily broadcasts that provide vital information for earthquake survivors. The News You Can Use segment is airing on 25 local radio stations in Haiti.
"We are supplying information because information saves lives," says Yves Colon, a Haitian journalist and Internews team member.
Time.com sheds light on the work that Internews is doing in Haiti:
To help spread Haitians who no longer had access to radios, Internews distributed 9,000 wind-up radios in January.
Shortly after the earthquake, the Knight Foundation provided $200,000 to help Internews get up and running in Haiti.
