- Heart for Haiti -

The 2010 Haiti earthquake was a catastrophic magnitude 7.0M earthquake with an epicentre near the town of Leogâne, approximately 25 km west of Haiti's capital. The earthquake occurred at 16:53 local time. By 24 January, at least 52 aftershocks measuring 4.5 or greater had been recorded. An estimated three million people were affected by the quake; the Haitian Government reported that an estimated 230,000 people had died, 300,000 had been injured and 1,000,000 made homeless (Wikipedia, 2010).

The following visualizations represents a collection of data on the funding of the Haiti disaster.


Wealthy countries carry more of the human consciousness to contribute than poorer countries.


The normal tendency for richer countries contributing more to the cause holds true in real terms. The highest contribution per person holds true to the highest GDP per capita of any country. There is also a gradual decrease in the contribution-GDP per capita ratio as the scale moves downwards from poorer to richer countries.
