Haiti - Humanitarian : First Mission of Paraguay in Haiti
A Paraguayan contingent is arrived in Haiti shortly before Christmas to help rebuild the country, as part of the UN Mission for Stabilization in Haiti (Minustah). This is the first humanitarian assistance mission deployed by Paraguay in a foreign country.

Composed of five senior officers, 15 junior and 80 NCOs, these men were trained for 3 years at the joint Training Center of the operations of the Peace. Before leaving, Lorenzo Jimenez, the UN representative in Paraguay, presented the flag of the world organization to the company commander.

This contingent of the Navy and the Paraguayan air force, equipped with trucks, excavators and tractors, will carry out work of road construction, housing, drilling of wells and water purification.

Recall that a month after the earthquake of last January, Paraguay had created a permanent commission to assess the needs of Haiti and to provide an assistance for the development in four specific areas: public works, health, sanitation and agriculture.
