Putting Haiti Post back on its feet

After a major earthquake levelled Haiti in January 2010, including its postal infrastructure, the UPU was there to help authorities rebuild the network. Postal experts travelled to the Caribbean nation to assess the damage and meet with postal and government officials, while the UPU appealed to its member countries for assistance. Many of them generously donated expertise, equipment and money that went to erecting a weather-resistant tent near the capital's airport that became the country's new international mail processing centre on 6 July 2010, less than six months after the catastrophe.
