Summercamp YWCA Haiti

Reopening YWCA Haiti

After 4 months of lockdown, YWCA Haiti recently reopened the youth center and resumed program activities for numerous girls and young women with the annual Summer Camp. Although the YWCA Haiti team was in regular contact with the program participants during the lockdown, the extent of the psychological and health impact of the Corona crisis is only now becoming apparent. Many of the girls are malnourished, neglected, and have experienced domestic violence during the lockdown. The needs in the slums of Port-au-Prince are great, and the reopening of the center is essential for all program participants. The Summer Camp was originally planned for 60 participants, but now 160 participants find a safe place at YWCA Haiti after the long lockdown.
