Amnesty International has recognized that rampant problems persist in Haiti since the earthquake that shook the country five years ago. Despite the influx of development aid, Amnesty notes the failure to establish long term housing solutions for the displaced. The organization published a report that documents the dire living conditions faced by the 85,432 internally displaced people who live in a number of camps throughout Haiti. The report reveals that only a third of those living in camps have access to a toilet, and many families continue to face the threat of forced evictions.
