In this May 4, 2013 photo, boat maker Audit Volmar, walks inside the shell of a sail boat he’s building on the beach of Leogane, Haiti. The 30-foot-long boats are purchased by smugglers for around $12,000 and then taken to northern Haiti to find passengers. In another major migration trend, Brazil also has become an increasingly common destination for Haitians since the 2010 earthquake. The South American nation initially opened its doors to Haitians seeking asylum, then later said it would issue 1,200 visas annually to allow them to work there for a five-year period. More than 4,000 Haitians have moved to Brazil, both legally and illegally, since the disaster. (AP Photo/Dieu Nalio Chery)
