In January 2010, a devastating earthquake struck Haiti that displaced over one million people, many of whom were children. Relief International responded to the crisis immediately and saved many lives through its efforts. A short-term disaster, however, creates long term need. One of the first steps to long term recovery is rebuilding communities, which Relief International is facilitating through its Child Friendly Spaces program.
After a devastating earthquake struck Haiti in January 2010, Relief International immediately considered its impact on women and children. In the aftermath of the disaster, women -- especially mothers -- were in need of recovery so they could continue to provide food for their families.
