About Cite Soleil Slum

Haiti's largest slum, Cite Soleil houses over 400,000 people living in abject poverty. Due to increased gang conflict in Cite Soleil, over 80% of NGO's have withdrawn their aid efforts throughout the slum. This in turn has left hundreds of children alone without aid. A street child in Cite Soleil has minimal odds of surviving life on the street unless they are recruited into gangs. Alone, they will often die due to starvation and disease.
