[World Report] Frontline: a Safe Hospital on the border with Haiti

The Caribbean island of Hispaniola is split by a border that separates the Dominican Republic and Haiti. It sits above a major fault zone, which puts the two countries at constant risk of earthquakes, such as the catastrophic tremor of 2010 that brought Haiti to its knees. Over the past 500 years, the island has been hit by several tsunamis generated by earthquakes. Hurricanes also pass through Hispaniola almost every year, further battering the vulnerable island.
