On Saturday April 16, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Ecuador killing hundreds of people, leaving thousands wounded and causing severe damage to infrastructure. Access to safe drinking water and storage, as well as shelter is urgently needed. With your help we can reach the most vulnerable populations with vital assistance.
What do Haitians want? On March 12th, 2010, film students from Haiti's only film school Cine Institute in Jacmel, in partnership with Oxfam and FilmAid, asked Haitians about their priorities for rebuilding their country.
According to the survey, the most pressing needs are: jobs, schools and homes.
Meet three of the people they asked:
- Jean Beleque an unemployed construction worker,
- Caliksta Mara who is a resident of Pinchinat Tent City, and
- Michelet Divers, a professor of literature.
