Today marks six months since a 7.0 magnitude earthquake rocked Haiti’s capital city of Port-au-Prince and turned an already shaky country into absolute rubble. Since that fateful day in January, Haiti has been met with billions of dollars in aid and a force of organizations that are determined to help rebuild the nation. But much like its pre-quake days, Haiti is marred with a lax and disorganized government and a seemingly passive leader in President Rene Preval.

As debris still lines the streets and victims continue to suffer from disease and injury, the world wonders when Haitians will finally regain normalcy in their everyday lives.
