Hunger and indifference: a portrait of Haiti, ten years after the earthquake
the ROME – Ten years. So much has passed from the quake of magnitude 7 that in just a few seconds razed to the ground in Haiti. The entire country, already among the poorest in the world, was put on the knee. An utter devastation so much so that it took several months before to get an estimate indicative of the dead: 220 thousand. More than a million displaced persons.

A chain of solidarity that led to the area dozens of time signature of the Third sector, to attract the attention on the emergency. Funds, facilities. All the apparatus-emergency active, to help those who had survived and try to reconstruct those facilities, already crumbling before the earthquake, but that after the tragedy had been shattered.
