Sewage runs, garbage piles up at Haiti quake camps

January 25, 2010

"Aid group Action Against Hunger has installed water distribution points at the camp where people crowd round with buckets, but emergency latrines have yet to be installed. A large area around a small cluster of tatty and overflowing public toilets is full of clumps of human excrement and dirty tissues. A large public fountain where many strip off to wash has turned an opaque dark green covered with scum and garbage."
