Description:This image was one of many captured by Lt. Cmdr. Gary Brunette, a United States Public Health Service (USPHS) officer, who’d been deployed to the Caribbean nation of Haiti shortly after the country’s earthquake in January 2010. Depicted here, was a scene inside a Haitian Internal Displaced Persons (IDP) camp shortly after the earthquake in January 2010. This tent was home to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
“OCHA led the humanitarian response to Haiti’s devastating earthquake in January 2010, which killed 217,300 people and affected 2.1 million Haitians.”

“OCHA will focus on supporting the Government to identify and implement durable housing solutions and accelerate recovery efforts. It will address security concerns for vulnerable groups, such as the elderly, women and children, and strengthen access to basic services, such as water and sanitation. OCHA will support national authorities to lead a comprehensive response to the cholera epidemic, and work to strengthen national disaster preparedness and contingency planning.” (see the OCHA link below)
