Sean Penn’s homeless camp in Haiti clearing out

TRENTON DANIEL | Associated Press
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti ā€“ A country club golf course that became a refuge for tens of thousands of people left homeless in Haiti’s capital by a 2010 earthquake is clearing out the remaining residents by this weekend.
They either will get or already have received a $500 rental subsidy, obtained from a local bank, to help them find a new place, along with an extra $40 for transportation and $110 to ease the move
“It’s kind of a first step. It’s to get them in a house where they can close and lock a door, secure their belongings and go search for a job.”
