Over the past year, the children and communities of Haiti have faced overwhelming challenges, ranging from the devastating earthquake that claimed hundreds of thousands of lives on January 12 2010, to a cholera outbreak, to floods and other disasters. The following photos focus on nine different areas in which UNICEF has helped - and is continuing to help - to protect the rights of children in the country over the past 12 months, including nutrition, water, cholera prevention and education.
Shelter. Eleven-month-old Davidson sleeps in a camp for quake victims, in the Delmas District of Port-au-Prince. His mother, Marie-Estanie Luxama, lost her left leg in the earthquake. She went into labour the same day, giving birth to Davidson in the ruins of her home. Just over 1 million people
remain displaced - 380,000
of them children - as a
result of the earthquake.
