As we flew into Port-Au-Prince you could see the devastation across the city. I saw the animals living among the people of the city. A dog being carried by a child, piglets rummaging through rubbish, a goat tied to a post and cattle loose in the road.
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.
