"We've Been Forgotten": Conditions in Haiti's Displacement Camps Eight Months After the Earthquake

September 24, 2010. The Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti has just produced a 48 page report on the conditions of survivors of the January 12 earthquake. Some of its findings are based on a comprehensive survery of 52 families in six internally displaced persons (IDP) camps in the Port au Prince region. The report also outlines the legal and humanitarian obligations of the Haitian government and donor countries and agencies. The report says there are 1.3 million people living in 1,300 makeshift IDP camps in and around Port au Prince .
