Photo by @paolowoods | After the earthquake hit Haiti on  January 12, 2010, makeshift tent cities, populated by those who had lost their houses, sprung up in squares and public spaces. Here, in Pétion-Ville, in Jalousie, one of Haiti's largest slums, a tent city was set up on a soccer field that belongs to a local church. It is the 10th anniversary of this catastrophic magnitude 7 earthquake that affected three million people, and carried a death toll of at least 200,000.
