On 12 January 2010, a magnitute 7.0 M earthquake struck 25 km west of Port-au-Prince, the capital city of Haiti. It caused catastrophic damages to the country’s capital and other settlements in the region, destroying many landmark buildings such as the Presidential Palace and the National Assembly building. The International Red Cross estimated that about three million people were affected by this devastating earthquake. And the Haitian authorities confirmed that they had buried 150,000 people as of 24 January.
Up until now, the government bodies from different nations and many international organisations have been providing resources and manpower to aid in the relief effort. Many charity events and activities are also held throughout the world by both public and private groups to raise funds in order to help the people of Haiti recover from this disaster.
