* Haiti / Earthquake Camps / Story #4071003

Nearly seven years ago, Adrienne St. Fume and her family fled their home as the earth shook and their city crumbled around them. They ended up in what was then a vacant lot overlooking a cluster of shops along a busy street in the Haitian capital, and they've been there ever since.

The mother of three said she figured the shack her family built of scraps of plywood and plastic tarp would be temporary as they and the rest of Port-au-Prince recovered from the January 2010 earthquake.

But St. Fume has yet to find a way out.

At least 50,000 people like St. Fume remain in 31 settlement camps that emerged in Haiti in the days and weeks after the disaster.
