Haiti Earthquake Recovery is Not Protecting Girls

http://www.hrw.org/news/2011/08/30/haiti-earthquake-recovery-failing-women-and-girls

In Haiti, the earthquake relief is not helping young girls with enough support and food needed. Some girls  in Haiti are forced to have sex for food. They're also facing gaps in healthcare which is allowing for maternal and infant deaths. As well, the camp conditions create easy sexual violence against the girls. Should girls in Haiti be put in this condition? In what ways can we help these girls?
