Tragedy

On Jan. 12, 2010, the nation of Haiti was rocked by a devastating earthquake that took the lives of nearly 300,000 people. Nearly two years later, more than 550,000 people are still living in squalid, overcrowded earthquake settlement camps in the capital of Port-Au-Prince, and new building projects have been small in scale and have produced little progress, while reconstruction efforts — including one co-chaired by former President Bill Clinton — have also been snagged. Read on to see how Haiti has survived, two years later. Visit the Red Cross to learn more about how you can help with the relief effort.—Britt Middleton
