Description

This camp is one of hundreds in Port-au-Prince that provide temporary shelter to 300,000 people in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake in 2010 that killed over 300,000 people and made over a million homeless. The Government, along with various third sector organisations, are trying to relocate camp inhabitants to rental accommodtaion or return them to their home provinces. he people living in this camp have no security. They could lose their few belongings overnight. Gangs operate in the camps. Hurricanes are a regular and terrifying occurrence in Haiti. Heavy rains can cause landslides. There is no sanitation, or access to healthcare. The camp is situated next to a ravine that is choked with rotten garbage and human waste. The goats and chickens that the people keep to survive feed on this filth. It's a desperate situation.
