Haiti: Two Years on

Haiti in January 2010, 10 days after the earthquake, was a country in shock. For days and weeks afterwards, large parts of the population devoted themselves to sifting through the rubble. It was a dangerous job, as concrete houses were still collapsing weeks after the initial quake, triggered either by aftershocks that continued for months, or by people moving rubble to try and find their loved ones, usually dead.
