Yes the refugee camps are depressing and in spite of all the aid and assistance being provided there is still need for one of the central pieces of LWF emergency relief work – psycho-social activities, particularly among the children.
The CLWR Haiti team was treated to the singing of a group of youngsters at the Leogane area camp we visisted. The children were enthusiastic and full of hope and encouragement as you can see in the title of one of the songs they sang for us – We are children, we are strong and we will change the world.
It’s going to take a massive effort by CLWR working through its Haitian partners, but with an attitude like that among the children, anything is possible.
