Haiti: Violent earthquake complicates the precarious situation of millions of vulnerable people
The powerful 7.2-magnitude earthquake that shook Southern Haiti the morning of August 14 could complicate the precarious situation of millions of vulnerable people in the country, warned the non-governmental humanitarian organisation World Vision. "We are deeply concerned about the devastation that this earthquake causes in a country already hit by extreme poverty, social and political unrest," said Marcelo Viscarra, National Director of World Vision in the Caribbean nation. The NGO works worldwide protecting the most vulnerable children and their families.
