NEWS: The Haitian diaspora in China comes to the aid of the Haitians of the Bateys in DR and the poorest in Haiti :
The Embassy of the Republic of Haiti in the Dominican Republic informs that it received on May 18 a donation of 10,000 surgical masks from Marcus Boereau, CEO of "IMAR Business Group", intended, according to his wishes, to the Haitian population living in the bateys of San Pedro de Macoris, Seibo, Hatomayor, Dajabon.

The "IMAR Business Group" is an international trade consulting firm headquartered in China. It provides trade advisory and facilitation services including, supply, inspection and quality, logistics services to companies operating in the Caribbean and doing business with China.

These masks were given by the Chargé d'Affaires a.i. Yves Rody Jean, in the presence of Marcus Boereau to the Association Scalabrinienne ASCALA represented by Sister Maria Eugenia Vasquez. ASCALA is a non-profit, non-governmental organization legally established in the Dominican Republic which supports vulnerable groups throughout the Eastern region and will be responsible for distribution.

Recall that in April another Haitian entrepreneur also established in China James Lissaint of Moma Group had offered to Haiti via the Haiti commercial development office in China 10,000 masks and screening kits that Ambassador Guy G. Lamothe Representative Permanent of Haiti in China sent to Chancellor Claude Joseph for distribution to the most disadvantaged.

Note that the Haitian diaspora in China, with nearly 60 members, is the first to manifest itself directly in Haiti in the fight against the Coronavirus.
