Two years after the 7.0 magnitude quake that killed an estimated 316,000 people, much of Haiti is still in a crisis situation with tens of thousands living in tent camps in and around Port-au-Prince.

A growing problem in the tent camps has been sexual victimization of women.  Sexual assaults have risen to epidemic levels in the temporary housing where an estimated 500,000 Haitians who lost their homes in the earthquake still live in crammed conditions.

Currently the UNHCR is helping hundreds of sexual assault victims and their families through safe houses, counseling and income assistance programs that seek to give the woman and their families a new start in life. However, donor money to support these programs is beginning to dry up and Haitians are growing increasingly angry with the slow pace of reconstruction.
