Where do we begin? First, we managed to get provisions to the southwest part of the country within a week after the devastating earthquake which left 130,000 houses, over 1,000 schools and some 90 health centres damaged or destroyed. The situation is further complicated by gangs controlling highways resulting in very serious fuel shortages and the reduced supply of goods.
The UN states that as of September 2021, 4.3 million people were experiencing high levels of acute food insecurity, up from 4 million in August 2020.
Earlier this month, when addressing the Security Council, Helen La Lime, Special Representative and head of the UN Integrated Office in Haiti (BINUH), said the country is undergoing “one of the most fraught periods of its recent history”.
To Love a Child continues to support teachers in the Central Plateau so that children can continue their education. We also sent a shipment of five 55 gallon drums filled with solar lanterns, tarps, toothpaste, toothbrushes, medicine, blankets, school supplies and more. The drums are in a warehouse in Haiti awaiting safe passage to their designated location.
WE THANK EVERYONE WHO CONTRIBUTED SUPPLIES AND MONETARY DONATIONS TO PROVIDE FOR THE MOST VULNERABLE PEOPLE IN HAITI.
We will continue to do what we can and keep you informed along the way
