In January 2010 the earth moved in Haiti, leaving more than 230,000 people dead. Another 250,000 were injured.
Israel sent an aid mission to Haiti, which provided medical and humanitarian assistance to the injured and survivors who remained homeless.
Another Israeli, actress and model Moran Atias, arrived with an aid delegation from Hollywood led by actor Sean Penn.
Atias volunteered and later helped raise more than $2 million for the construction of a school in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince.
Now, as a token of gratitude, the Artists for Peace and Justice organization has decided to name one of the school's classrooms after Atias. The new school is slated to include a music center led by Quincy Jones.
