Marie Carmel Telisme and her son Myson Merville live in a tent in a camp in Grand-Goave, Haiti, for people left homeless by the January 12, 2010, earthquake. They have decorated the inside of their tent with election posters from Haiti's presidential contest, the second round of which was originally scheduled for January 16, but has been postponed after widespread allegations of vote-rigging. Some 800,000 Haitians continue living in temporary shelters, according to the latest estimate from the International Organization for Migration. The ACT Alliance has supported people in this camp with a variety of services, and rebuilt a school at the edge of the camp.
