First person: Haiti then and now

Skyler Badenoch tells Al Jazeera how the January quake changed the country forever.

    Thousands of people from abroad have tried to improve the lives of Haitians after a massive earthquake struck on January 12, killing 300,000 people.

    One of them is Skyler Badenoch, who works for Build On, a US organisation that builds schools across the globe.

    He arrived in Haiti a day before the quake struck, and has since returned many times.

    Through his photography he tells Al Jazeera about the situation then, and now.
