Catholic Relief Services employees unload ready-to-eat meals at a site for displaced Haitians in the Delmas neighborhood of Port-au-Prince. 450 ready-to-eat meals were distributed along with 80 hygiene kits and 160 packs of bottled water (12 in a pack).

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 in the capital, Port-au-Prince. Photo courtesy of Michelle Hough/Caritas.
