Yvette Lapaix et ses voisins de la commune de Carrefour ont dû reconstruire leur vie suite au tremblement de terre dévastateur qui a frappé Haïti en 2010. Ils se sont rassemblés au sein d'associations villageoises d'épargne et de crédit créées par CARE. Ces groupements participent à la relance économique du pays et créent une nouvelle cohésion sociale.

« Lorsque des gens qui ne se connaissent pas se rassemblent et travaillent ensemble dans un but commun, ils apprennent à se faire confiance. Ils deviennent une communauté », témoigne Yvette.

Yvette Lapaix and her neighbours in Port-au-Prince’s Carrefour district have built a great deal since the earthquake five years ago.

But what she’s most proud of isn’t bricks and mortar. It’s unity.

“When people come together who didn’t know each other before, and work together for a common goal, they learn to trust each other. They form a community,” says Yvette.

For people displaced by the quake, that community is the first step toward a new home.

On January 12, 2010, Haiti was struck by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake, devastating its capital, Port-au-Prince, and surrounding areas.

The quake affected more than two million Haitians, claimed over 200,000 lives, and left 300,000 injured. At the height of the crisis, more than 1.5 million newly homeless people were sheltering in some 1,500 spontaneous settlements.

Port-Au-Prince. January 10, 2013.
