Makeshift camps "Pak Kado" for Deporded in Anse-à-Pitre

Here is a picture of a Makeshift camps "Pak Kado" in Anse-à-Pitre for the Deported people coming from the Dominican Republic.

On August 15 and 16, 2015, the Support Group for Returnees and Refugees (GARR) had visited different sites at Anse-à-Pitre which have been built to accommodate the future returnees, our compatriots, from the Dominican Republic. The purpose of their visit was to gather information on the facilities and infrastructure that have been created for the deportees. "Pak Kado" is a camp at the foot of a hill where over 115 repatriated families from the D.R are living since July 17, 2015. The makeshift camps have been built here out of cardboard and straw. There is no regular supply of clean water and food. In similar condition at "Tête à l'eau", a second camp located about 3 kilometers from 'Pak Kado', another 140 families live. People here are dying of hunger. The members of an organization sometime visit these camps and help them with little food. That's all.
