Women play a vital role in the recovery of families in Haiti. Many find themselves with larger families, as they take in children and elderly relatives, but shrinking or non-existent incomes. Since the earthquake, women and girls are particularly vulnerable.

To help them support themselves and their families, the UN is helping young women in the camps to become seamstresses.
