Haiti: Through the Lens
Days after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, award-winning photojournalist Evelyn Hockstein was sent on assignment to Haiti with CARE. Hear her recount her experience as you watch the photographs she captured in the heart of the disaster zone.
For more than fifty years, CARE has been actively fighting against poverty in Haiti and defending the human dignity of disadvantaged families. At the same time, we have assisted those affected by the frequent natural disasters that have visited Haiti through the years. CARE partners with families, communities and local governments to support sustainable development and improve the quality of life.
Following the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010, CARE extended its support to people in the affected areas of Léogâne and Port-au-Prince, providing access to safe water and sanitation, decent housing and improving skills in building sturdier structures.
Since the cholera outbreak in October 2010, CARE has been particularly active in rural areas of the country to spread prevention messages, improve safe water supplies and support medical facilities with essential materials.
We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
Haiti: One Year Later
