Q&A w/ Scott Harrison

July 12, 2013

Scott Harrison

In 2004, Scott Harrison left the streets of New York City for the shores of West Africa. He'd made his living for years in "The Big Apple" promoting top nightclubs and fashion events. Desperately unhappy, he needed to change. Faced with spiritual bankruptcy, he wanted desperately to revive a lost Christian faith with action and asked the question: "What would the opposite of my life look like?" He signed up for volunteer service aboard a floating hospital with a group called MERCY SHIPS, a humanitarian organization which offered free medical care in the world's poorest nations. He took the position of ship photojournalist, and immediately traveled to Africa. Often through tears, he documented life and human suffering. Over the next eight months, he met patients who taught him the meaning of courage. Upon moving back to his home in New York City in 2006, he founded Charity: Water, a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
