This report spans the Red Cross Red Crescent operations from January 2010 to November 2011, with a focus on the second year of the operations, marking the end of the prolonged emergency phase and a transition into more sustainable, community-driven solutions.

The emergency distributions of tarpaulins, hygiene kits and safe drinking water that dominated the Red Cross Red Crescent operation during the first year have given way to financial support to small businesses, vocational training to help people back into the job market, a large camp decongestion programme offering rental support and relocation grants, and the provision of transitional shelters to tens of thousands of people.

Haiti earthquake 2010 - one year progress report,

IFRC, 8 April 2014

1.6MB

On January 12 2010, a magnitude 7 earthquake struck the most heavily populated area of the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Already struggling with poverty, low levels of healthcare, unemployment, lack of access to water and sanitation, and highly vulnerable to violent tropical storms; Haiti suddenly faced the biggest natural disaster in its history.

This report covers the Red Cross Red Crescent relief and early recovery operations from January to November 2010. Ten months of intensive activity has provided sufficient experience with which to reflect on what has been a monumental operation for the humanitarian community. The dust has settled and the engine is in motion. There is sufficient progress to weigh what has been accomplished and to gauge what still needs to be done.
