On January 12, 2010 a terrible earthquake left Haiti in crumble and chaos. The earthquake has touched many lives and devastated every aspect of Haitian society. However The earthquake of 2010 did not destroy ravage the spirit and passion of the people of Haiti but but redefine it. Haiti did not implode but explode. Haitians have come to discover and redefine our slogan : “ L’Union Fait La Force” “( In Unity there is Strength and ” With Many Hands the Burden is Lighter)”.
