A 7.2 magnitude earthquake devastated Haiti on August 14, 2021, killing more than 2,000 and crippling buildings and infrastructure. Haiti is also sustaining an almost direct hit from Tropical Storm Grace as of Monday, August 16. Compounding the turmoil caused by the natural disasters is the assassination of Haiti's President Jovenel Moïse on July 7, civil unrest, food insecurity, and cholera.
