Fils sits near the Pastoral do Migrante shelter where he is based in Manaus
Jean Marence Fils, 43, sits near the Pastoral do Migrante shelter where he is based in Manaus September 22, 2011. Since the January 12, 2010 earthquake that killed around 250,000 people in Haiti, hundreds of Haitians have been migrating to Brazil via Peru and Ecuador. According to the Pastoral do Migrante, a Catholic entity that helps Haitians seeking refugee status in Brazil, there are more than 2,000 Haitians in the Amazonas State region of Brazil, with only around 400 having managed to acquire resident visas from the government. Most work in construction and in factories, earning little more than the minimum wage of $300 monthly, leaving them little or no money to send home to family in Haiti, according to the Association of Haitian Workers in Manaus. Fils, who has diabetes and is anemic, has been living in Brazil for eigth months without being able to find work. He wants to go back to Haiti, take care of his health and come back to Brazil.
