Un an après le séisme qui a frappé Haïti, les dommages sont encore évidents. Les camps de tentes et les amas de décombres sont là pour nous rappeler la tâche monumentale qui reste à accomplir, tandis que la crise du choléra et l'ouragan Tomas ont révélé au grand jour la difficulté d'un retour à une vie normale.

Au coeur de ce défi, on observe certains signes d'espoir et de progrès. Des milliers de gens sont retournés chez eux. Des centaines de milliers d'enfants, qui constituent l'avenir du pays, sont retournés à l'école.

« Au cours de l'année écoulée, le peuple haïtien a traversé de terribles épreuves : un tremblement de terre dévastateur qui a fait des centaines de milliers de victimes, une épidémie de choléra, des inondations et d'autres catastrophes. J'ai pu moi-même constaté l'héroïsme quotidien des citoyens haïtiens et de ceux qui les aident, héroïsme qui contribue à la reconstruction d'Haïti. Aujourd'hui, malgré d'énormes difficultés, les enfants sont toujours plus nombreux à être vaccinés, à retrouver leur famille et à reprendre le chemin de l'école.

Significant decision making power is often allocated to these committees, related, for example, to the type and distribution of aid, selection of beneficiaries, and assistance for more vulnerable groups. However, the roles and responsibilities of the committees and the expected code of conduct are often undefined, and unknown to the wider camp population.
