Hospital workers dig through rubble at the St. Francois de Sales hospital in Port-au-Prince Haiti on Friday, January 15, 2010 in the aftermath of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck earlier that week. They were attempting to access a stock of medical supplies; the hospital is almost completely out of supplies. The team had one hammer and one hand saw in order to dig through the wreckage.Lane Hartill/Catholic Relief Services
