Some Facts About Haiti

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western world with more than 85 percent of people already living in poverty. Many of the homes were poorly constructed and ill equipped to withstand the earthquake that measured 7.0 on the Richter scale. The earthquake struck at 4:53pm local time, with the epicenter 10 miles west of Port-au-Prince, the country's capital. This was the strongest earthquake to hit Haiti since 1751. The Disaster Emergency Committee launched the DEC Haiti Earthquake Appeal yesterday. Donate at www.dec.org.uk. Life.com remembers Haiti before the devastation.
