These photos illustrate the life for hundreds of thousands of internally displaced Haitians, families who were left homeless after the earthquake. Since the start of March, rain has been falling everyday, filling the camps with mud and puddles. Imagine starting each day exhausted and wet, and knowing that the risk of cholera and malaria grows with each rain.
The United Nations and NGOs still have funds in hand to help the victims of the earthquake yet they are asking for more money in order to deliver the lifesaving aid that people need today.
Who is making the decisions about how existing funds are spent? The rainy season brings new urgency to the living conditions of Haiti's internally displaced people (IDPs) and saving lives must be the number one priority of humanitarian organizations - urgent action must be placed before keeping money in the bank to sustain the agencies and NGOs themselves.
