The Adolescents - Haiti 2010
A group of young people living in the camp at Champ de Mars, which is the camp in front
of the National Palace in Port-Au-Prince. They have a camp inside the greater camp. Their camp is situated around a big concrete structure that was build by one of the Duvaliers. Inside the structure there is a hole that used to be where the 'eternal flame' used to burn. Now the hole is used for garbage.
The youngsters are between 15 and 24 years old. Some were living in the street before the earthquake and moved to the camp after the quake, thinking that they might would get som help there. Others lost their parents or their whole family in the quake and joined the group which at the moment counts around 25-30 youngsters and 7 kids. They haven't recieved any help at all.
