Earthquake anniversary highlights need
for basic systems to benefit Haiti's children
GENEVA/PORT-AU-PRINCE, 7 January 2011
- One year after the devastating January 12 earthquake shook their fragile
lives, Haiti's 4 million children continue to suffer from inequitable access
to basic water, sanitation, healthcare, and education services and protection
from disease, exploitation, and unsanitary conditions, UNICEF said today.
Today, more than 1 million people -
approximately 380,000 of whom are children - still live in crowded camps.
