Haiti: One Year Later

It has been one year since a massive earthquake rumbled underneath Port Au Prince-Haiti, bringing down half of the city’s buildings, and killing over 200,000 people.  The aftermath was shocking, and the road to recovery would be long and hard.  But hope lingered, as many Haitians knew that they would indeed recover, and live to see a brighter future.  A few days ago, on January 12th, the streets of Haiti were filled again with songs of grief and praise.  On this one year anniversary, thousands of people lifted their voices to the sky to remember the many loved ones lost, and to swell the country with their strong spirit.

Amurtel continues life saving medical treatment in Port Au Prince.  A medical team has been working non-stop on bringing cholera treatment and other care to remote villages and to refugee camps.  Amurtel has also started a micro-credit program with women in the these camps.  The program has had a very successful start, opening many doors to women owned and run micro businesses in the heart of Port Au Prince.
