Haiti is reeling after experiencing two natural disasters. On the morning of August 14, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake hammered the Caribbean nation. Less than 48 hours later, the country took a direct hit from Tropical Depression Grace.

Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world. This one-two punch has left it desperate for humanitarian aid.
