Haiti - Politic : «Don Kato», request to declare the state of emergency in Petit-Goâve
Excerpts from the "Don Kato" Message :
"I extend my sympathies to my friends, affected families and all the victims. I send you this message to tell you that you are not alone and you will never be alone in this difficult moment. I share your sorrows, I am at your side and I stand with you.
I will not make promises that I can not keep. The only thing I can tell you is that I am going to invite the Ministry of Social Affairs to assume its responsibilities [...] This Ministry must consider how the State can intervene urgently in Petit-Goâve.
On this very difficult occasion, the central state must not delegate its own burdens to NGOs. Of course, NGOs can always support [...] but the state is the main concerned.
[...] Given the magnitude of the situation should declare the state of emergency on the town of Petit Goave. There should also be a synergy of actions of 3 Ministries : Social Affairs, Public Works and Women's Conditions to help the families affected in Petit-Goâve [...]
As for the militants of Petit-Goâve, [...] you are united and cooperative. Bring your help [...] Do everything in your power to save lives..." i>
