Haitians Relocated To Tent Cities Outside Of Port-au-Prince Stranded With No Food, Work

Posted: Updated:

In the aftermath of the earthquake that leveled much of the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince, NGOs helped relocate thousands of Haitians to a tent city in the countryside. The move to flat ground was intended to save homeless earthquake survivors from the dangers of mudslides in Port-au-Prince. NGOs provided food, water and other supplies to the Haitian families moving into this tent city.

Now, more than four months after the earthquake, food aid is no longer being delivered and Haitian residents have no way to earn income to purchase food on their own. With demand for food growing, residents are traveling back to the capital city in search of work.
