When a devastating earthquake struck Haiti in 2010, Chantale and her children lost everything. Chantale, a single mother of five, had to abandon her home and take her family to Canaan, a settlement for disaster victims over an hour away.

Jacky eventually escaped his servitude and survived by living on the streets, sleeping under abandoned cars and begging for food.
Chantale and her younger children lived a very hard lives in a tiny shack in Canaan. The settlement has 30,000 families living without running water, electricity, or sanitation services.
