SOLINO


The Solino slum is considered the second most dangerous area of Port-au-Prince. This neighborhood shows another side of the housing crisis in Haiti, as residents from encampments - usually encampments close to some of the more wealthy areas of Port-au-Prince - were paid to move to Solino and other places, leading government officials to proffer that tent camps no longer exist. The reality is that many were simply shifted or pushed to less visible parts of the country, essentially just removing the face of the encampments from view, but not the underlying fact of the matter.
