Nearly 3,000 still living in camps after 2010 earthquake in Haiti

More than seven years after a powerful earthquake killed more than 300,000 people and left more than a million homeless, the International Organization of Migration (IOM) says nearly three thousand people are still living in camps that were erected to accommodate displaced people for only three years.

The IOM Health, Protection, Return and Camp Management Operations (CMO) teams said 2,900 people, including 315 children under the age of four, and 723 between the ages five and 18 years old, are still living in camps erected after the 2010 earthquake and were expected to accommodate displaced people for only three years.
