Road damaged by earthquake

As we've mentioned in some of our other recent blog posts, the 12 of January 2011 was the anniversary of the earthquake which horribly affected Haiti one year ago.

Children's charity UNICEF published an interesting piece on their UK website that states that there are 4 million children who are still suffering from basic water, sanitation, healthcare, and education services and protection from disease and illness, exploitation, and unsanitary conditions.

The financial or practical assistance and determined recovering from this earthquake disaster of the Haitians and the international community have been phenomenal fantastic. But there's still so much good work that needs to be done with many people still live in crowded camps. It is not easy for charities.

UNICEF mentions in its report "Children in Haiti: One Year After - The long road from relief to recovery" issued in recognition of the anniversary, that it's only really the start of seeing things improving.

It's easy to understand with a disaster of this magnitude.
