Last Friday, the Dominican Government has provided assistance to dozens of Haitian families living in extreme poverty in communities bordering Haiti. During this humanitarian operation, food rations [rice, beans, oil, sardines, milk, sugar, corn flour and wheat flour doughs] were distributed under applause and demonstrations of joy of the population who thanked the Dominican Government for this assistance.

"At home, we often stayed for several days without eating, because nobody works and there is no money to buy food. I know now that we are going to cook, thanks to the Dominican government" declared full of emotion, Nilatrenne Louis Pierre, one of the beneficiaries of this program.

This food distribution operation, was supervised by the blue helmets of Uruguay, members of the UN Mission for Stabilization in Haiti (Minustah), which control the city of Ouanaminthe [Haiti].
