Three years after Haiti's earthquake, Canada continues to help


Three years after an earthquake devastated Haiti and killed more than 230,000 men, women and children, Canada continues to help survivors rebuild and recover.

Organizations such as the Canadian International Development Agency and the Red Cross say their focus has shifted from "immediate life-saving assistance to long-term recovery to ensure communities can build a stronger and healthier future.

"The Canadian Red Cross is committed to sharing expertise and resources with the Haitian Red Cross and providing communities with programming that best fits their needs," Conrad Sauvé, secretary general and CEO of the Canadian Red Cross, said in a statement. "This includes facilitating projects dealing with shelter, health, violence and abuse prevention, and helping to reduce the risk of future disasters."

To date, the Canadian Red Cross has provided homes to more than 7,500 families, supported 2,089 families with cash grants for rental accommodations and treated more than 1,500 patients at a Canadian Red Cross cholera treatment centre.
