Thankful for life
Today marks the first anniversary of Haiti’s most devastating earthquake, measuring 7.0.
More than 300 000 lives were lost in the January 12, 2010 quake, and the United Nations reported yesterday that more than a million people, including about 380 000 children, are still homeless.
Since the quake, millions of dollars in pledged aid have been slow in coming.
Though many remain cooped up in tents and lack basic necessities, ordinary Haitians are very grateful for the gift of life.
