Two years ago, the world witnessed one of the most devastating natural events in recent history. A massive 7.0 earthquake rocked the island nation of Haiti, killing more than 200,000 people and leaving millions homeless. Today, despite an outpouring of money and aid, problems still remain, with an estimated 500,000 people still living under tents and the official death toll from cholera in the thousands.
