A Forgotten Disaster: Haiti's 2021 Earthquake | Week 1 - Les, Cayes

A 7.2 magnitude #earthquake struck southwest #Haiti on August 14, leaving an estimated 650,000 people in need of aid. Although this story has all but disappeared from headlines, the fact remains that over 120,000 structures, including homes, schools, and churches, were destroyed, with many more suffering serious damage. The majority of these structures are in remote, hard-to-reach areas with little hope of assistance reaching them anytime soon.Get an inside look at the Haitian reconstruction efforts in remote regions across the country.

It is nice to see the proactive approach you and your team have undertaken for Nepal earthquake... I still remember one of your slides, which says, 'There is a cost for doing nothing.' - Tamorish Kole, Society for Emergency Medicine, India

After talking to Miyamoto, we decided to do a complete retrofitting of the structure as well as an expansion. An earthquake by itself is not a fatality. It is how you build that makes the difference. - Richard Buteau, Karibe Hotel Owner

This building can withstand an unlimited number of earthquakes. That’s the difference... In the event of a major earthquake, this airport will be the center of emergency response for Southern California. - Dan Feger, Executive Director, Bob Hope Airport

- Dan Feger, Executive Director

There are dangerous buildings everywhere on earth. Unless we speak out and build better, we will see many more of  these tragedies in our lifetimes. - Kit Miyamoto
