PHOTO ESSAY: Documenting the Lives of Girls in Haiti

By Nadia Todres

In the 1300 tent cities scattered across post-earthquake Haiti, young girls are coming of age amidst threats of sexual violence, rampant disease, and makeshift living conditions. Photographer Nadia Todres visited the camps of Port-au-Prince to document the precarious lives of girls on the ground.

It's a pity that the innocent girls are passing through such a hard time and unfotunately;not by their will.I understand how they feel because in our country some displaced persons have not yet been settled and they are still in the IDPs centres due to the Post Election Violence.we hope they'll pass through the hard time and may god bless you for your work and the heart of willingness to help. love, leila
