In the early evening of January 12th, 2010, a devastating earthquake struck in and around the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince, virtually flattening the city, killing thousands and affecting millions.
Two years later, Haiti is still struggling to recover from this disaster. Half a million Haitians still live in displacement camps. These camps lack security, not to mention infrastructure for water, sanitation, electricity, education, food, and other resources.
While the need is great, so are the ways through which one can help. This page is meant to serve as a useful guide so that you can contribute in the recovery and rebuilding of lives in Haiti.
