Haiti - The Pictures

I was looking at the large amount of pictures from the Haiti earthquake on Boston.com and these are the 12 pictures that moved me...

Rescue dogs are seen in their enclosure before leaving for Haiti at the Torrejon military airbase in Torrejon de Ardoz, Spain, Wednesday Jan. 13, 2010. Firefighters without Borders, the International Red Cross and other aid groups said they are preparing a major disaster relief effort in Haiti after a powerful earthquake struck the capital.

Earthquake survivor Hotteline Lozama, 26, smiles as she was pulled out from the rubble by French aid group Secouristes Sans Frontieres in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2010.

Oscar Oliva, a member of a Mexican search and rescue team, cries with joy on January 19, 2010 as he embraces a fellow rescuer after the group pulled 69-year old Ena Zizi from the rubble of Haiti's devastating earthquake, exactly one week after the city was reduced to ruins in a matter of seconds. Zizi was rescued from the collapsed home of the parish priest at Port-au-Prince's Roman Cathedral Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption.

Tears run down the cheeks of four-year-old Aikta as she waits for treatment at a makeshift hospital run by B-FAST (Belgian First Aid and Support Team).

A young Haitian man cries out in pain as his mother comforts him while being treated for a trauma wound on his arm at the Center Hospitalier de la Renaissance January 20, 2010 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Patients are being treated on the grounds of the hospital by Cuban and German doctors due to fears of the building's structural integrity.
