NEW YORK, Dec. 29, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- See video from UNICEF at:

Surrounded by her meager possessions, Deliverance "Tite Soeur" Boislo struggles to get through her daily chores in the bare two-roomed concrete shell that has been home to her family for the past 10 months. It is located in Cite l'Eternel, which despite the inspiring name, is one of the poorest neighborhoods of Haiti's capital Port-au-Prince. Even before the earthquake it was one of the city's most populated neighborhoods, a situation that has only been made worse since the disaster as thousands of homeless families like Deliverance's have flooded into the area putting up makeshift shelters. Like much of the capital, Cite l'Eternel has no running water or sanitation facilities. These conditions are of great concern given the cholera epidemic now ravaging Haiti and one reason why neighborhoods like this have been targeted by UNICEF in their cholera prevention campaigns.
