This week is not only the mark of the destruction, in Haiti, but also the anniversary of one of Japan's biggest earthquakes to date.

"People who lost their parents in the Great Hanshin Earthquake ran a fundraising drive in Kobe on Sunday to help those affected by Tuesday's powerful earthquake in Haiti."
