    In this photo taken June 20, 2011, children look at the camera in front of their temporary house at a refugee camp set up for people displaced by the January 2010 in Carrefour, Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The structure is one of hundreds of wooden frames with steel or plywood roofs that foreign aid groups erected as a temporary fix for people displaced by the January 2010 earthquake, a way station between squalid tent camps and the new homes that would one day be built for the displaced.

    This handout photo provided by Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, taken March 29, 2011, shows the congressman at a rubble at a site in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. House Republicans have told the top U.S. foreign aid official that the country's earthquake relief efforts in Haiti have been pathetic. Chaffetz says only 5 percent of the rubble has been removed and 22 percent of the needed transitional shelters have been built. Those figures came from inspector general reports. (AP Photo/Rep.

    Haiti's president-elect Michel Martelly speaks during a private interview with Reuters in Port-au-Prince April 6, 2011.

As president, Martelly will have to lift up a country prostrated by a 2010 earthquake and decades of poverty and corruption, chained to foreign aid and mined by explosive politics.

Gaza Strip residents are going back to the days of kerosene stoves and firewood-gathering as Israel's blockade of foreign aid supplies of fuel and food bites deeper. Israel denies there is any humanitarian crisis in Gaza and insists it is not trying to cause one. Food remains available but in shorter supply and at higher prices in the territory, where smuggling from Egypt accounts for 30 percent of needs. REUTERS/Stringer (LIBYA)
