One year ago Haiti was devastated by a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 earthquake that killed over 230,000 people and left over a million people homeless. There was a huge outpouring of aid to Haiti, and while many have been helped, at least 1.3 million people are still living in temporary shelters and makeshift camps around Port-au-Prince.
Aid has slowed in recent months and the recent outbreak of Cholera has complicated recovery efforts, highlighting the necessity of helping Haiti rebuild their infrastructure for the long-term, rather than just providing short-term relief.
As we reflect on the progress made and the challenges that remain, we wanted to share projects that are addressing the root cause of problems and will create lasting solutions for the Haitians they benefit.
