"Port-au-Prince isn’t a war zone, the way it is often represented."

To be more specific, what I've seen described as a "war zone" are the camps, as opposed to damaged but pre-existing neighborhoods. How are the camps doing in your estimation?

Question: Do you think your status as part of an NGO might insulate you from many local issues? i.e. Neither of two gangs fighting for extractive privileges over a zone has much cause to go after or frighten off groups that bring resources into said zone.
