Haiti - 2010 earthquake : Rain of messages
This January 12, 2023, commemorated the 13th anniversary of the earthquake of January 12, 2010, with a magnitude of 7.3 on the Richter scale, which occurred at 4:53 p.m. and 10 seconds local time. An earthquake which in a few seconds killed nearly 300,000 people, injured hundreds of thousands and left more than one and a half million Haitians homeless, causing material damage to buildings and infrastructure for several billion dollars, leaving ruins the capital Port-au-Prince...

Acting Prime Minister Ariel Henry:
"13 years after the disaster of January 12, 2010, the Haitian people still remember their thousands of dead and injured, as well as countless material damages. Unity, reconciliation, reconstruction and socio-economic recovery of the nation constitute the finest and most vibrant tribute that we can pay to our victims. May this devastating earthquake of January 12 inspire us and show us once again the path of solidarity, fraternity and real change for the benefit of our country."

Ministry of Tourism:
"To all those who remained under the stones, who left their lives in this tragedy that occurred 13 years ago, torn from the arms of their families and friends. To all those whose dreams died prematurely, smothered in concrete and blown away with their last breath. To all those who have gone before us: we still continue to keep the flame burning, and to honor your memory. We continue to fight for the Haiti that we all dream of and deserve. We continue to stand tall through thick and thin to manifest the vision of a land where life is good for all of its children.
Gone but not forgotten!
Rest in immortality."

Ministry of the Environment:
"13 years since we have been living with a pain that time has not been able to erase. The Ministry of the Environment sympathizes with its employees as well as the families who were victims of this sad event. We salute the memory of the deceased and continue to prepare to avoid these disasters."

Bocchit Edmond Ambassador of Haiti to the USA:

"January 12, 2010 - January 12, 2023
13 years since...
13 years already...
We will never forget."
