report Finn Church Aid

Five years ago, January 12th 2010, Haiti was shaken by a devastating earthquake. It killed over 200.000 people and left two million homeless. The earthquake was followed by a major cholera epidemic. The political instability and fragile social structures have hindered the reconstruction of the country.

Apart from the presidential elections, no other elections have been called since the earthquake. The legislative elections were supposed to take place over three years ago, and after January 12th the congress will no longer be competent to enact legislation.
