Photos From Haiti

By Charles King

January 19, 2010

Charles King is back in New York, and will be blogging one more time as a wrap-up. Here are some photos from the experience.

Top photo: King with Haitians at the Diaspora clinic, where more than 20 people are living, six with broken bones that we set.
Second photo (second row, left): From left to right: Edner Boucicaut, who King describes as "the hero in this story," his boss, Roosevelt, and King
Third photo (second row, right): A garbage truck carrying someone who was killed. Unfortunately this is an all-too-common sight in Haiti this week
Bottom photo: Destruction in Port-au-Prince

Charles King

Charles King is the president and CEO of Housing Works which has been providing services since 1990 to homeless men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS in New York City and beyond. King is one of a handful of people living with HIV at the head of a major AIDS organization. He cofounded Housing Works with his life partner Keith Cylar. When Cylar passed away in 2004, King took the reins.

Born and raised in a small town in Texas, King attended Yale University's law school and divinity school and was ordained as a Baptist minister by an African-American church in New Haven, Connecticut. He conducts a weekly Bible study course at Housing Works' Keith D. Cylar House, where he lives in a small, book-lined studio. King also leads Housing Works' advocacy department and has been arrested dozens of times.
