The January earth quake created a large number of displaced children and left many as orphans. Since the quake the government and NGOs have worked together to establish health clinics and child-friendly spaces in many of the camps.  Nevertheless, children are still at risk.

In Haiti today there are several thousands of street children, many of who have fled abusive conditions or lost care takers in the earthquake.  As one of the most vulnerable populations in Haiti, street children are at high risk for human rights violations.
