#Haiti #sexualabuse #exploitation Paula *, who was sexually assaulted when a gang of men, wielding guns raided a Church in which she and friends were holding a candle lit vigil in memory of those who died in the Haitian #Earthquake in 2010, poses for a photograph in her one roomed apartment that she shares with her son and mother, in Port au Prince, #Haiti on the 15th January, 2013. Already the poorest country in the #Americas, within a few moments of the earthquake the country collapsed into chaos. Some 316,000 people – nearly one sixth of the population – were killed and 1.5 million made homeless. Billions of dollars of #humanitarianaid flooded the country yet most of this money never reached those who needed it most. I have been thinking of vulnerable people like Paula this week as the horrific allegations of sexual exploitation have come to light in Haiti. She desperately needed help; but never received anything from the thousands of NGO’s who flooded the country in the wake of the disaster.

#DRCongo @guardian Itunga washes her new born grand daughter, Itsuma, watched on by her #mother Abataki at a health centre near to Isangi in the Democratic Republic of#Congo. This is one of several heath centres whose staff have recently undertaken a five day Water and Sanitation training which means the centre now has #cleanwater. Abataki says the reason that she has come to the centre to deliver is because it is now clean. The Maternal and Child Survival Program, which is funded by @usaid and implemented in Kisangani by JSI is providing essential clinical training and drugs to health workers in this health zone.
