Haiti is a Caribbean country that is full of many exquisite landmarks and beautiful sight-seeing. However, the country has been trying to recover from the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake. This earthquake was termed as the strongest earthquake since 1770 by the experts and has left Haiti in shackles. The earthquake affected over 3 million inhabitants and led the poverty level in Haiti to an alarming height.
Haiti is in need of humanitarian assistance as around 60 percent of the area’s population survives on an income of less than $1 per day. This has resulted in malnutrition and anemia taking a toll on the health of Haiti’s population. As per records, Haiti is the third poorest country in the world.
Only 50% percent of Haiti kids are able to enjoy school life while most of them are unable to find access to a proper education. One statistic suggests that only 50 percent of Haitian citizens have access to clean water sources such as a well or a hand pump. This implies that a major portion of the population must depend on rivers, lakes, and streams for their water demands, regardless of cleanliness. This makes those without access to clean drinking water more prone to water-borne diseases.
Donations, humanitarian aid, and of course sympathy are three essential requisites that are required to bring Haiti back on track.
