On the Road: Haiti

We're fighting hunger, come with us

Four months after the catastrophic earthquake in Haiti, the media reflectors have largely moved on. Yet Haiti is still fighting to come out from under the rubble, its sprawling tent camps an enduring reminder that the humanitarian emergency is far from over. Silke Buhr takes us to the heart of WFP’s ongoing mission in Haiti, from the skies over a remote mountain village to the playground of a Port-au-Prince school, to find out what’s being done to heal this wounded country.

Back to school in Haiti

Silke visits a school in the Croix-de-Bouqets area on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince where a hearty lunch gives way to an afternoon of fun and play. School meals like these are offering kids all over Haiti the beginnings of a return to a normal life.

A bird's-eye view

Silke gets a bird's-eye view of Haiti from the window of a helicopter delivering food aid to remote mountain villages. While not damaged by the earthquake, these outlying areas have become a refuge for people who lost their homes in the cities. The influx of displaced families has put additional strain on the area's scarce food resources.

Welcome to Camp Charlie

Silke walks us through an ordinary day on the job at Camp Charlie, the nerve center of WFP's operations in Haiti. Here, the gears of food aid turn round the clock to supply over three million people around the country with food relief. The day gets a little less ordinary when UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon drops in for a visit.
