CAMP AND RELOCATIONS
Listening and adapting to needs on the ground

THE PETIONVILLE AND CITE MAXO CAMP

At the onset of the earthquake emergency response, J/P HRO became the official camp manager of one of the largest camps for earthquake survivors who had lost their homes. The Pétionville Camp, together with the neighboring Cité Maxo Camp, housed approximately 60,000 individuals at their peak in 2010.

Through an $8.75 million grant from the Government of Haiti and The World Bank, J/P HRO’s Camp and Relocations Management Team implemented a relocation process to transition the camp residents into safe, long-term housing in the surrounding neighborhoods. January 2014 marked the official closing of the Petionville Camp and the successful relocation of all 60,000 residents into sustainable housing.

AFTER PETIONVILLE

J/P HRO has supported thousands of people in their transition to safe and sustainable housing in the greater Delmas 32 area.

PROTECTION

Throughout the relocation process, our Protection team provided support to all residents to ensure their wellbeing, safety, and protection. The Protection and Communication staff raises awareness of social and gender issues through direct assistance, as well as community workshops and public campaigns. The team ensures that survivors of reported cases of abuse and sexual violence have access to medical care, psychosocial support and legal aid—and are accompanied throughout these processes by members of the Protection and Communications Team.

After the full relocation of our camps, the protection team transitioned to working in the community at large. This is an example of how we listen and adapt to needs on the ground.

At the end of 2015, the Camp and Relocations program was phased out, having successfully achieved its goals in order to focus on the next stages of development.
