Year 13 Haiti Earthquake By Lewis Ferrari
+ James Phillips 98% of the rubble on the roads hadn’t been cleared restricting aid access
1 million people still without houses after 1 year so still have to live in aid camps
Support for people without jobs, which equates to nearly 70% of the population, through cash/food-for-work projects
Temporary schools created and new teachers trainee
Water and sanitation eventually supplied for 1.7 million people $100 million in aid given by the USA and $330 million by the European Union
810,000 people placed in aid camps
115,000 tents and 1,000,000+ tarpaulin shelters provided
Healthcare supplies provided to limit disease
Lack of immediate aid through poor planning, management and access meant that people had to try and rescue each other
4.3 million people provided with food rations in the weeks following the earthquake Haiti The Effects - Primary 316,000 people were killed and 1 million people were made homeless. 3 million people were affected by the earthquake
250,000 homes and 30,000 other buildings, including the President’s Palace and 60% of government buildings, were either destroyed or badly damaged
Transport and communication links were also badly damaged by the earthquake
Hospitals (50+) and schools (1,300+) were badly damaged, as was the airport’s control tower
The main prison was destroyed and 4,000 inmates escaped The Effects - Secondary 1 in 5 people lost their jobs because so many buildings were destroyed. Haiti’s largest industry, clothing was one of the worst affected
The large number of deaths meant that hospitals and morgues became full and bodies then had to be piled up on the streets
The large number of bodies meant that diseases, especially cholera, became a serious problem
It was difficult getting aid into the area because of issues at the airport and generally poor management of the situation
People were squashed into shanty towns or onto the streets because their homes had been destroyed leading to poor sanitation and health, and looting became a real problem When did it occur + what happened?
