Haitians being moved to Tent Cities to avoid Disease (Good or Bad?)

Haitians are leaving their ravaged capital by the hundred – thousands, as their government promised to help nearly a half-million more move from streets and curb-side beds to more “accommodating” tent cities. The main goal is stopping the spread of disease at hundreds of settlements that have no water or sewage. Homeless families have put up tarps and tents, cardboard and other scraps as shelter from the sun, but they will be useless once the summer rainy season hits.

  1. I suppose tents are better than nothing. I mean, yeah, it’s bleak and not exactly luxurious, but you gotta think about the community aspects of it. Kinda reminds me of that Fight Club line. Something like, “It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.”

    • Good point Nip, I was looking at it from the violence side of it. This has given me a little more clarity which I will have to think about and wait and see. Thanks for the input.

    • That is what I was thinking they need to move a lot further than down the street. Bring some FEMA trailers I know we have a lot left over from Katrina.
