At the end of March, at least 3000 people fled the Tabarre Issa site, after at least two individuals were killed and three others wounded, including one incoming. UNICEF partner Kids Club Haiti has assisted several refugee families in their water, food, and shelter premises.

Besides the basic amenities, education in Haiti also needs attention from globally. Haiti has 15,200 primary schools, of which 90% are non-public and maintained by communities, religious foundations or NGOs

The registration rate for primary school is 88%. Secondary schools recruit 20% of eligible-age children. Higher education is administered by universities and distinct public and private organisations.

Notwithstanding the postulate of a free school in the National Constitution, Haitian families are subjected to tuition fees since 80% of them are private. Today, the average year-end tuition fee is 75 dollars (approximately 60 euros).

After getting a degree, the sectors rarely provide employment that can fulfil the families and employer’s requirement. The only hope in Haiti is global humanitarian assistance that can glorify the lives of people in Haiti.
