    homes and jobs ost on Jan. 12.

    The scae of ceanup and rubbe remova remains

    daunting. Dispaced famiies crowd into urban tent cities,

    survive in their own makeshift sheters, or seek refuge

    in other parts of the country. nd now the summer rainy

    season has begun, highighting amost daiy the urgent

    need for safe, heathy sheter.

    REl fAmIlIeSt the same time, ife goes on. The resiience of Haitis

    three of their neighbors. In that minute, neary 90 perc

    of logne was destroyed.

    For 16 straight nights, Chares and her chidren se

    outside. Chares soon created a makeshift sheter near

    her mothers damaged home. Made mosty of bedshee

    with meta gates propped together to provide a faade
