On January 12, 2010, a devastating earthquake measuring up to 7.0 moment magnitude struck the Caribbean nation of Haiti. Between 100,000 to 316,000 deaths were reported from the disaster. More than three million people were also made homeless from the disaster.
The earthquake was one of the deadliest natural disasters to have happened in this third Millennium. Many countries and organizations responded to appeals for humanitarian aid, pledging funds and dispatching rescue and medical teams, engineers and support personnel to help the country.
The American Red Cross was among the many organizations that pledge to provide humanitarian help.
After the disaster, the Red Cross raised nearly $500 million to help in the reconstruction process.
