Staff for Catholic Relief Services, including Donal Reilly (right), the Deputy Director of Emergency Operations, unload hygiene kits that were packed in the Dominican Republic. The kit includes items such as soap, toothpaste, mosquito nets, toothbrushes, and towels. Nine hundred and sixty eight kits were delivered to the CRS warehouse in Port-au-Prince, in addition to plastic sheeting for shelter, and food kits.
This programming was in response to the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti on Tuesday, January 12, 2010. The earthquake killed and injured thousands of people, primarily the capital, Port-au-Prince. Photo by Lane Hartill/Catholic Relief Services.
