Canaan, Jerusalem, Camp Corail-Casselesse and ONAville

Here is a picture of Camp Canaan. A lack of proper planning seems to be the culprit behind the rapid and complete deterioration of Camp Corail. Promised to have been an almost completely self-sustaining community for those displaced after the 2010 earthquake, the community was to have presented 30, 000 jobs and provide schools, health care and amenities like electricity, food and water. While it met some of its targets, the factories, like one promised from an apparel company from South Korea, were not open for business when the masses moved in. Soon, thousands more than planned for flocked to the promise of new jobs, erecting tents and shacks to house themselves.
