Tent Cities Struggling

(Photo by John Carroll-- August 22, 2011)

My 22 year old nephew and I walked through a small tent city a couple of days ago near the Haitian Coast Guard in Carrefour.

Several hundred people have been there since the earthquake.

No one was complaining. They just kept working.

These makeshift homes were tiny....maybe 15 feet by 15 feet? And small charcoal fires sit right outide the front door serving as a hazard for toddlers playing close by.

It was terrible.

Here is an article from The Guardian.
