On August 14, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake hit the Nippes Department of Haiti, in the southwestern part of the country.
Destruction is widespread, especially after several landslides took place.
While many people are still missing or have been found under debris, at least 1,941 have died and nearly 10,000 people were reported injured.
To make matters worse, Haitians had to endure Tropical Storm Grace just two days later. The heavy rainfalls posed a challenge not only for displaced people but also for relief efforts to reach those in need.
