Haiti: United Nations Mission for Justice in Haiti Says Country is better Prepared for Earthquake than it nine Years Ago

The director of communication at the United Nations Mission for Justice in Haiti (UNMIJUSTH), Sophie Boutaud Combe, says that the Haitian government is now much better prepared for natural disasters similar to the earthquake of January 12, 2010. “There a few months ago, an earthquake occurred in the north of the country. The state was ready and they sent their staff to support those affected without MINUJUSTH involvement. It was not a major earthquake, but now the people know how to react. And most importantly, we regularly hear how important it is to build better, to build solidly in the event of another earthquake, so as not to expose people, said Ms. Lacombe,

The massive earthquake destroyed half of the capital, killed 250,000 people and displaced 1 million people.
