When a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti in 2010, the American Red Cross responded along with members of the global Red Cross network, providing food and water, medical care & rubble removal, and emergency shelter to people in need. Six years later, the Red Cross is still in Haiti, continuing to help people affected by the devastating earthquake. See how the generosity of the American people helped those impacted by the quake.
