Earthquake in Haiti: the forgotten towns to which humanitarian aid does not reach

Route to Marceline
Caption,

The road to Marceline is riddled with cracks.

Marceline is a 30-minute drive north of Les Cayes in Haiti.

Before the earthquake, the town had two churches – one Catholic and one Baptist -, a medical center, a school, and a voodoo community center.

An asphalt road runs through it, and as you exit it, there are only narrow paths flanked by banana trees that wind between cinder block houses.

The town we come to is unrecognizable.
