The Earthquake in Haiti, Two Years Later

Two years after the earthquake in Haiti, the need is still great

This month marks the second anniversary of the January 2010 earthquake that devastated Port au Prince, killing more than a quarter million, injuring over 350,000, and leaving an estimated one million without shelter. Having gone there three times since then with groups from Children's Hospital Boston to participate in the relief efforts, hardly a day goes by that I am not reminded of what I saw and lived during those weeks. Ranging from the truly horrible to inspiring and uplifting, many of the experiences were unlike any others I had had prior to setting foot in Haiti.
