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.
Water. Children carry jugs of water at a camp for quake victims, in the Delmas District of Port-au-Prince. At the height of the emergency, UNICEF and partners were reaching close to 680,000 people with safe water. We are now working with partners to extend water networks in slums to
serve an additional 130,000 people.
