SYNOPSIS: Port-au-Prince. 12th January, 2010. 45 seconds were enough to knock down the 90% of the schools, 60% of the hospitals... Enough, so that thousands of people lost their lives, that there were more than 350.000 injured people and more than one million children became orphans. The 75% of the Salesians works were seriously damaged by the earthquake.
"The awakening of Haiti" presents these 45 seconds that left the country in ruins. And the objective of the Salesians: "Our dream is a better Haiti, where the youngsters are able to take care of themselves, safe youngsters". After 75 years working in the country, the Salesians continue with more strength than ever. Haiti ne será pas oubliée! Haiti will not be forgotten!
