Fos Refleksyon ak Aksyon sou Koze Kay (FRAKKA)

FRAKKA is a coalition of 40 grassroots organizations and IDP camp committees that advocate for the rights of the 500,000 Haitian people still living in camps following the 2010 earthquake. After Haiti's President Michel Martelly called for the clearing of public areas where many of these camps are located, many IDPs have been violently evicted, losing all of their belongings after their tents were burned or bulldozed; others have been paid to leave the camps and return to their pre-earthquake homes, most of which are uninhabitable. FRAKKA is working to redress these wrongs and create a just and sustainable plan for the resettlement of IDP communities.
