On Tuesday 12th January 2010, a catastrophic earthquake measuring 7.0 on the richter scale shook Haiti’s capital Port-au-Prince and other settlements in the region to their core.
An estimated three million people were affected by the quake, many people died, many are missing and thousands of Haitians have been left homeless.
While the aftershocks were felt physically in Haiti, they were also felt around the world.
