Televisions, newspapers, magazines and the internet have taken stories and visuals of Haiti's January 12th magnitude 7 earthquake to the entire world. But while much of the focus has been on the devastation and the resultant makeshift camps in the capital, Port Au Prince, the earthquake wreaked havoc in other parts of the country too.


Leogane, a small town, an hour's drive from the capital, was closer to the epicenter of the quake and much of it was flattened. Of those who survived, most lost their homes and have settled in makeshift camps on whatever piece of open land they can find. This camp, on the grounds of a damaged school is home to hundreds of displaced survivors; they strip the roof of the school to build themselves a home. Pierre Fuijee was a lawyer, but like everyone in this camp, he lost everything in the quake including family.


SOT Pierre Fuijee Lawyer (French)
"Since the event, it has been very hard for us because eight people died in our family The situation is really difficult, especially with the small one and now the rain is threatening and we can't protect ourselves because we live in tents."


Life here is tough, apart from the lack of proper shelter; lack of access to clean water and toilets in camps throughout the country mean the threat of waterborne disease is ever-present. But UNICEF and its partners have been working hard to ensure that those living here have access to clean water, and sanitation facilities. A water bladder has been set up, connected to a series of taps, its refilled daily and provides clean water for cooking drinking and bathing.


Separate latrines for men and women have also been dug, giving each privacy, but also keeping the camps themselves clear of human waste.


SOT Rolando Wallusche Saul UNICEF Water and Sanitation Specialist (English)
"We're in an emergency phase which means that we need to deliver water and we need to deliver emergency sanitation, well you have a big likelihood of spreading of diarrheal diseases, that's why is very important to build latrines, from the point of you of a health situation but also to try to give them back what they had even if the settings are not optimal, but it's a need, sanitation is as important as water."


The pretty coastal town of Jacmel, once a haven for tourists, was also affected. While many of its historical buildings survived, many of its housing areas were flattened. Thousands have gathered in camps around the town. Here in the largest camp, thousands of people who have lost their homes seek shelter.
