      • Haitian Women Testify: Epidemic of Sexual Violence in Haiti's IDP Camps

        Take Strong Action Now to Stop Gender-Based Violence in Haiti “The way you saw the earth shake, that's how our bodies are shaking now” described one woman of a secondary humanitarian crisis facing the women and girls of Haiti. As Haiti’s earthquake toppled buildings, it also toppled social structures that provided Haitian women some protection against sexual violence. Rape was widespread before January 12, but the hundreds of thousands of women now living on the streets or in camps, often without their family and neighborhood networks, are more vulnerable than ever. We produced a set of videos with Partners in Health and the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti in connection with Haiti's 2010 earthquake. These videos were designed to expose the fact that despite raising $2.5 billion and heavily advertising great successes, international aid organizations were still not getting aid to the majority of the biggest camps in Port au Prince (where many Haitians are still living, even two years after the disaster). This video, featuring testimonies from three courageous young Haitian women, focuses on the rape epidemic after the earthquake. It was shown to several members of Congress and helped persuade them to lobby USAID to allocate more money to anti-gender-based violence efforts. These efforts resulted in the authorization of significant money in USAID grants to fight gender-based violence. Special thanks to Harriet Hirshorn for shaping and editing this video and to Sandy Berkowitz for shooting it.

            On September 7, 2009, charity water turned three. To kick off the September campaign each year, and in the spirit of connecting you to the people you've served, we spend each anniversary in the field. Today, we celebrated in the town of Cabastor, Haiti, where more than 3,000 people got clean drinking water for the first time, thanks to your donations and our local implementing partner, Partners in Health. The people of Cabastor are virtually cut off from society. A giant lake separates them from roads, and access to clean water and healthcare. To them, drinking water used to mean a murky river nearby or long walks high in the mountain to unprotected springs. Not anymore. In three months, the community dug trenches for 285 pipes, helped get 500 bags of cement across a lake by canoe and up treacherous footpaths to make the project successful. Our local partner, Partners in Health, found and protected a freshwater spring high in the mountains, and used gravity to bring clean water to 6 distribution points (tap stands) in the valley.Clean water now flows freely here. In just three years, you've helped us make a dent in the water crisis, bringing clean and safe drinking water to over 700,000 people in 16 countries. This September, we want to make that 1 million people.

Its goal was to mobilize people to pressure NGOs to commit more resources to the camps and to listen to the voices of Haitians. Special thanks to Sandy Berkowitz for shooting and editing this video. He did an incredible job on a very tight timeline and we are extremely grateful. Take a look at more of Sandy's work here: http://vimeo.com/user3252062.
