The Best Sites For Learning About The One-Year Anniversary Of The Haiti Earthquake


Next will mark the one year anniversary of the terrible earthquake in Haiti, and things continue to look tragic there.

For information on what happened a year ago, and for background on Haiti, you can visit my massive The Best Sites To Learn About The Earthquake In Haiti.

Media reports have started to mark the anniversary, and I’ll be adding accessible ones as they become available.

Here are my choices for The Best Sites For Learning About The One-Year Anniversary of the Haiti Earthquake:

Moving Forward in Haiti is an interactive from The New York Times.

Haiti One Year After The Earthquake is a Slate slideshow.

The Haiti Earthquake: One Year Later is a PBS slideshow.

CNN has quite a few related videos.

The Mail Online compares photos of a number of places from a year ago to now. The last one is a gruesome.

  1. W5: Haiti a year after the quake
    “With the first anniversary of the deadly earthquake that struck Haiti approaching, Craig Kielburger travelled to Haiti with actress and humanitarian Mia Farrow, to see first-hand how the country is recovering.”

    This report on Haiti a year later, takes a good look at how children are affected 1 year later and how little relief and donations have actually made it to assist children and families in need.

    Craig Kielburger began his claim to fame at 11 years old making his story a great one to share with students.
