That simple, short two-syllable word immediately brings to mind another two-syllable word: EARTHQUAKE. However, the ramifi cations and repercussions from that tragic event were not short and simple. Even today, more than fi ve years after the 7.0 MW


HAITI catastrophic quake ruptured rocks—and lives— the reverberations continue.


Yet, it would be another tragedy to still see Haiti through the images of misery and mayhem that fl ooded the news media those years ago. For out of that rubble and ruin, forces arose more powerful than past casualties and chaos. Those forces: restored lives and hope. Yes, Haiti is still the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere with many problems to solve. However, its proud people are anything but poor in spirit. They are determined to climb to new heights—in new ways.


One new way they are reaching those heights is through Ayiti Air Anbilans (Haiti Air Ambulance), a nonprofi t organization that arose out of the 2010 rubble. In North America, helicopter air ambulance is often taken for granted. In Haiti on the island of Hispaniola, it is seen as something to fi ght for and cherish.
