On January 12, 2010, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake shook Haiti and shaped a generation. While its duration was brief, the devastation it caused continues to affect the people of this small country -- the poorest in the Western Hemisphere. Three years later, Haiti is still in repair, but not without hope.

The Haiti quake was nothing short of catastrophic: 1 in 3 people were affected. Nearly a quarter of a million lives were claimed in the disaster. Another 300,000 people were injured, and 1.5 million were left homeless.
