On January 12, 2010, a devastating earthquake struck Haiti, killing more than 200,000 people and causing horrific injuries to over 300,000. More than 1.5 million people were left homeless after buildings in the capital Port-au-Prince collapsed or were left unusable.  

One affected building was Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF)’s obstetrics hospital, where Canadian physician Wendy Lai worked before and after the earthquake. She tells her story in the video above.
