Tent City Neighborhoods
All over the world people are becoming refugees in their own land. They have been displaced by war, famine and natural disasters. Millions driven from homes must make shelter with tents, tarps and blankets.
They have to remake their lives with donated food, water and clothing. It is happening in Somalia, in the Congo, in Syria and in the Phillipines, in Haiti and in the United States.
In Haiti the earthquake of 2010 killed over 300,000 people. It destroyed millions of homes. Plastic tarps and tents were given to the citizens to make shelter. Four years after the earthquake, many still call a tent their home.
