Haiti Quake: Photos Then and Now

You are here

It's been 5 years since Haiti's worst earthquake in 200 years devastated the country in mere moments. What took minutes to destroy will take years—and close collaboration with our partners in Haiti, the United States and beyond—to mend. Challenges remain, but we have made tremendous inroads over the last 5 years. In January, Catholic Relief Services and the Archdiocese of Port-au-Prince will reopen the newly rebuilt St. Francois de Sales Hospital. The hospital has been transformed into a state-of-the-art, 125,000-square-foot teaching facility on the hospital's original site in the heart of downtown Port-au-Prince. CRS staff recently revisited sites that were devastated in 2010 and brought back images of how they look today.
