Material aid to Haiti

Material aid to Haiti to save the planet

Clean water, sanitation, food remains a priority for the provision of material assistance to Haiti.

UN Under Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Valerie Amos went three-day visit to Haiti to see the progress of the project to provide humanitarian assistance. After the earthquake last year in the camps are still 600,000 people who need support.

Residents of the camps near the capital, Port-au-Prince expressed his dissatisfaction with the situation: the president and donors shifted to long-term projects that do not end up solving housing issues. "People are sensitive to the lack of food, as well as fear contracting cholera in the season of tropical cyclones," — said Valerie Amos. Although the number of victims of cholera has decreased compared to the previous year, heavy rains in September caused another outbreak of cholera in the country. Received 57% of funding is not sufficient for a full exit from the situation. Deputy Secretary-General stresses the need to further address questions about sanitation and the provision of material assistance to Haiti.
