  2. An estimated 400,000 people live in the Kamrangirchar Peninsula.
    Previously a dumping ground for Dhaka's waste, it is now a highly populated area where migrants from other areas of Bangladesh live in houses made from wooden sticks above the dirty water and families share rooms with up to ten inhabitants.

  3. In the Martissant Slum in Port au Prince, like elsewhere in Haiti, many women are made victims of rape and domestic violence. The massive destruction of the earthquake has lead to further dislocation and insecurity and abuse of women. These Haitian women have little or no recourse either through their family or the law and the shame for this type of violence leads many women to hide and deal with the pain in isolation.

  4. Flooded for decades with rural migrants in search of job opportunities in Nairobi, Kibera slowly turned into the Kenyan capital’s biggest slum. Just a stonethrow away from the UN agency for human settlements’ headquarter (UN-Habitat), Kibera's inhabitants are considered "squatters" by the Kenyan government which, as a result, does not provide for any essential public services or basic infrastructure.

  5. Nine months on from the floods that devastated much of Pakistan in July 2010, an estimated four thousand Internally Displaced Persons are still squatting in a single three kilometers long urban camp known as "Super Highway One". Unable to return home to their villages, residents are supported by MSF who provide medical facilities and potable water.
