In Concern Worldwide's latest blog post on the Haiti quake the charity reports that distribution of food, clothing, hygiene kits and shelters are only a fraction of the solution to the problem.

Following discussions with local women in focus groups it was made clear that jobs and security of future work is paramount.

One Haitian lady said: “If you work, you can have a house and not depend on others…you can eat regularly…Without work you are still a slave.”
