Haiti: Three years after the massive earthquake

2013-01-11

"It was very difficult; there was no life in these tents. We were surviving, but just barely.” 

It's been three years now, since that 7.0 earthquake killed more than 200,000 people and injured roughly 300,000. Things have come along way since that fateful day of January 12, 2010. The World Bank and several NGO's including Catholic Charity 'Caritas' have played a key role from the very start. 

In fact, Caritas has a fund of more than 200 million dollars to promote education projects, health services and housing programs for Haiti's marginalized communities. 

JUNIOR CAVILLARE 
Housing Recipient
"For us in Haiti, our biggest problem is a house, to sleep and wake up in, because even if the person has nothing to eat, if that person finds a place to sleep he will feel much more at peace." 

Out of the 1.5 million people who were displaced along the capitol, most have now moved in to a permanent home. Ongoing efforts, include education and health programs, especially now that a cholera epidemic has turned into yet another challenge. 

FRANCOISE LAURIESERAVINE 
Clean-up Worker
"When it rains, the ravine gives us lots of problems because sometimes the water will carry a lot of garbage and the garbage smells so bad we cannot breathe.” 

Thanks to international support, more and more tents are being exchanged for permanent houses. Now Haitians, like Marie, can begin to call these houses home.
