'Misery breeds violence' in Haiti's seaside slum

Photojournalist Ron Haviv of the VII Photo Agency recently spent time in Haiti, documenting life in a seaside slum for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

The ICRC has been in Haiti since 1994 and in Cité Soleil since 2003. Rob Drouen, head of the ICRC delegation, says, “Haiti is a fragile state where armed gangs can be used to stir up trouble for political reasons and abject poverty fuels discontent.”
