Nearly four years after quake, Haitians still in tents – Yahoo News


As the fourth anniversary of the disaster approaches, more than 170,000 Haitians are still living in makeshift housing, in extremely precarious conditions and sometimes facing eviction.

Widlene and her family live in a tent on a private lot along a main road linking the capital Port-au-Prince to the eastern suburb of Petionville.

The girl has never been to school and spends her days staring blankly at cars and trucks speeding along the road nearby.

\”On January 12, 2010, the roof of our house fell on top of our heads. I wasn\’t hurt but our house fell apart and so we came here,\” Widlene recalls, her bare feet covered in dust. via – Yahoo News
