9781936088669: Earthquake in Haiti (Code Red (Bearport))

On January 12, 2010, the world of the small Caribbean-island nation of Haiti was shaken apart. All aspects of daily lifefrom clean water and food to having shelterwere turned upside down by one of the most devastating disasters in history. This book is an account of the moment of the disaster and all that followed, including the large and small acts of kindness made around the world to meet the desperate needs of the earthquakes victims. Earthquake in Haiti includes first-person accounts of the tragedy. A man named Wismond, for example, who was trapped beneath 30 feet of rubble for more than 11 days, recounts what it was like screaming and knocking for help for so long that he almost gave up hopeuntil his brother (who had escaped the building unharmed) heard him. The book also covers fund-raising efforts to help Haiti, the kind of relief work being done on the island, and the reaction to the disaster by Haitians living in the United States. In all, a life-affirming account of the human instinct to help each other in the darkest of times.
