Documentary: Degrassi In Haiti

Ever since an earthquake devastated Haiti 2 years ago, the country has been struggling to get back on its feet. Despite major donations from various parts of the world, there is still a lack of housing, and poverty is rampant.

Last summer, several Degrassi cast members made their annual Free the Children trip to Haiti. They were given the task to build a new playground for children in a local community. As always, a half hour documentary was filmed about the cast’s experiences.

Degrassi In Haiti premiered on Much Music last month, and is available to watch online at

For those of you who live outside of Canada, a lovely person has posted the documentary on YouTube. Check it out – Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.
