Director of Let Haiti Live at TransAfrica, Melinda Miles, joined Jean Yves Point-du-Jour and Kevin Edmonds from the Canada Haiti Action Network to talk about the situation for Haiti's homeless more than two years after the earthquake. Take a look at the conversation on Al Jazeera's Inside Story.
"Even before the earthquake struck Haiti, in a country of just ten million, hundreds of thousands were in need of housing. But after the quake the housing problem turned into a crisis, with nearly half of the homes in the capital suffering significant damage. The International Organization of Migration (IOM) says that the number of homeless is down from a peak of around 1.5 million to 400,000, which is a significant drop. So why are Haitians still angry? President Michel Martelly, along with the IOM, launched a housing program giving camp residents $500 in rental subsidies for a year."
