Haiti - Humanitarian : Distribution of aid, of communities remain inaccessible...
Friday, the Ministry of Interior and Territorial Communities (MICT) informed that the two vessels flying the Dutch flag "The Pelikaan" and "Holland" and the Colombian ship "ARC 7 Argusto" made available to the Government of Haiti have completed a first phase of their mission of humanitarian supplies on the coast of the great South.

Nearly 370 tons of humanitarian aid, consisting mainly tarpaulins, food, water and medicine were delivered. The Ministry of Interior stressed that "the Government will continue supplying the local structures by sea and air until the stability of the demand."

"From 17 to 26 October 2016, the three ships and their crew, with the support of the Haitian technical staff on board, have supplied local structures among others to Petit-Trou de Nippes, Grand Boucan, les Basses, Corail, Jérémie, Abricots, Clisan, Bonbon, Dame-Marie, Anse-D'Hainault, les Irois, Petite Cahouane, Tiburon, Nan Sable, Jean Jacques and Tapion. Communities like Fond Tortue, Cunnonbois, Grand Boucan, Paraclet, Poban, Nan Georges, have also been served from helicopters of the fleet," says the Ministry.

The Ministry also explained that "These local structures and others were supplied according to the needs assessment established by local authorities and members of the civil protection committees and also depending on availability. These distributions were carried out in strict respect for the dignity of families."

However, it is good to remember that 169 localities are still inaccessible by land and are deprived of humanitarian assistance according to a declaration of de facto President Privert earlier this week...
