About

The past two years, Caritas International and the network have been focusing primarily on Haiti. At the beginning of 2010 an earthquake destroyed a large area of the country, with the devastating consequences of more than 100,000 deaths and no less than one and a half million people left homeless. During the first emergency phase, the Caritas network distributed medical care, water, tents, food rations and blankets. This was followed by reconstruction projects, including the construction of 1600 homes in the Port-au-Prince area and an orphanage that can house 150 children. In recent years Caritas was also active in other countries in Latin America. They provided emergency aid to the victims of floods in Ecuador (2008), hurricanes in Cuba (2008) and the earthquake in Chile (2010).
