Children Scavenge for Valuables in Garbage Dump in Haiti
Members of the Chilean and Brazilian contingents of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) conduct rehabilitation works and CIMIC (Civil-Military Cooperation) activities in Haiti.
Many corners of Port-au-Prince are covered with mountains of garbage. Children carry plastics and metals for recycling scrounged from the smoldering garbage dump of Port-au-Prince through this road that is muddy and dusty. The construction of the new road is one of the CIMIC projects.
