Flooding in Haiti kills at least 42, Prime Minister promises action

05 Jun 2023  |  Reuters
Torrential rains in Haiti have resulted in severe flooding, causing at least 42 fatalities, with dozens more people missing and injured. The floods have affected various parts of the country, including areas near the capital, Port-au-Prince. Over 13,600 homes have been reported as flooded. The Civil Protection Agency announced the increase in the death toll and highlighted the impact on the agricultural sector. Prime Minister Ariel Henry has stated that the government is working with national and international institutions to address the crisis. Aid agencies are providing food to those displaced. The flooding is particularly challenging as it coincides with the Atlantic hurricane season and ongoing issues with gang violence, which have hindered rescue operations.

26 Jan 2023  |  Reuters
Haitian police officers protested the killing of fellow officers by gangs by blocking streets and entering the country's main airport. The protests occurred as Prime Minister Ariel Henry returned from Argentina, leaving him temporarily stranded at the airport. The U.S. State Department confirmed the safety of its personnel in Haiti, who were visiting during the protests. The human rights group RNDDH blamed Henry and the police chief for the deaths of 78 officers since July 2021. The Bahamas' foreign ministry instructed its citizens and diplomats to leave Haiti following an incident where Haitian police stopped a Bahamian diplomat. The United Nations is considering sending a strike force to address the gang violence in Haiti, but no country has volunteered to lead it.

Earthquake survivors in Haiti face a multitude of obstacles on their path to recovery

04 Sep 2021  |  Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) International
The article discusses the role of Elvie Pierre, a social worker at Tabarre hospital in Haiti, who assists patients in staying connected with their families during hospitalization. Pierre helps patients make phone calls and arranges for them to stay with relatives in Port-au-Prince if possible. However, due to space constraints and the distance from patients' homes, some cannot stay in the city. The hospital has set up a tent for those who have nowhere else to go. Dr. Alain Ngamba, MSF medical coordinator, emphasizes the importance of continued care, including post-operative follow-up, physiotherapy, and psychological support. MSF plans to provide accommodation in Port-au-Prince for patients who need to continue their treatment at the hospital in Tabarre.

On August 14, 2021, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck southern Haiti, affecting the Grand'Anse, Nippes, and Sud provinces, resulting in over 2,200 deaths and 12,000 injuries. Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has been actively providing medical care to the injured, opening emergency centers in Port-au-Prince to stabilize patients for further treatment. MSF's hospital in Tabarre specializes in treating traumatic injuries and severe burns, having received 70 earthquake survivors. The organization is coordinating with others to ensure continued care, including physiotherapy and psychological support. Logistical challenges due to damaged roads and the need for long-term recovery plans are highlighted, with MSF also operating in the affected southern regions.

Wounded residents shaken by Haiti's recent earthquake and now soaked in heavy rains, were seen lying on the floors of the Immaculate Conception Hospital in Les Cayes on Tuesday, waiting to be seen by medical staff.

In Verrettes, young girls are sold to men as concubines

09 Jul 2019  |  Loop News
In the sixth communal section of Verrettes, Haiti, known as 'Démarré', a practice called 'Alantran' allows men to keep young girls, some as young as 14, as concubines or wives in exchange for money paid to their parents. This practice, which is a form of economic and sexual exchange, is seen as a way to perpetuate tradition and alleviate economic hardship. However, it has been likened to human trafficking. Victims share their experiences of being sold into concubinage, with their 'Alantran' negotiated between their parents and their current partners. Human rights advocates, government officials, and international organizations condemn the practice and call for stronger legal measures and societal change to combat this violation of human rights and dignity.
