Description

In Haiti, more than 600,000 survivors of the 2010 earthquake are still without adequate shelter. In the survivor camps, clean water, sanitation, medical service, schooling and child care are in short supply. Haiti is without a robust reconstruction plan or a functioning national government. How can global aid and relief assistance improve in Haiti? How can international solidarity assist Haiti to recover its national sovereignty?
