In Haiti, the worsening of socio-economic-political crises and the continuous increase in insecurity (kidnappings, thefts, rapes, assassinations, etc...) are the main causes that push Haitians, especially those from the most vulnerable strata, to flee the country in search of a better life...

According to the migration authorities of Panama, this year, Haitian migrants constitute the third largest group of migrants to cross the Colombian jungle of the "Darien Gap" one of the most dangerous regions in Latin America, an area of ​​​​swamp and of hostile forests of approximately 8,000 km2 where 3 groups of rebels clash, essential passage to pass in Panama.
