These children live in the coastal town of Petit-Goâve, Haiti - about 60 km southwest of Port-au-Prince.  Not only was their town significantly impacted by the January 12 earthquake, it was also affected by a 5.9-magnitude aftershock eight days later.  The USGS reports the epicenter of that aftershock was almost directly under Petit-Goâve.

In this photo, we see the children running toward a UN helicopter on the day of the aftershock - January 20, 2010.
