Humanitarian aid in Haiti
Germany and its partners

On 12 January 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake devastates Haiti. More than 220,000 people die, over 300,000 are injured and one and a half million are made homeless. It is one of the worst natural disasters of modern times - and it hits, of all places, the poorest country in the western world. All state structures collapse. The disaster triggers a wave of international solidarity.

The German government reacts within a few hours: Immediate, unbureaucratic, needs-based aid is provided. BROADVIEW TV shows in vivid pictures how the German Red Cross, on behalf of the Federal Foreign Office, carries out immediate measures that alleviate the worst of the need.
