Haiti Prison Conditions Create Misery and Despair
Prisons in Haiti possess some of the worst living conditions. Inmates are packed closely into a single room, where they huddle together on a cement floor. With no room to stretch out, they are forced to sleep in shifts. Their diets consist of gruel and little else.
They suffer from poor nutrition, mental ailments, and the possibility of heart attacks. They live in filth, occasionally hosed down. Their human rights are ignored and they are left to perish.
