On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck in Haiti, killing more than 230,000 people, mainly in Port-au-Prince, and leaving 1.3 million homeless. Most government and social service buildings, including hospitals, schools, jails, etc, were destroyed. Coordinating and rescue and relief was severely hampered because around 16,000 civil servants were killed. The scale of the destruction is being blamed mainly on shoddy building construction due to weak or non-existing regulations and poor oversight. This, according to many observers, stems primarily from decades of corruption, political instability and poverty. In the wake of the destruction two survivors recount the harrowing experience, from their perspective, explaining how they survived and who is to blame.
