Haiti - Earthquake : Aid from France is coming
Relying on the system of military sovereignty forces present in the Antilles, France mobilized the "Germinal" surveillance frigate based in Fort-de-France (Martinique) to transport nearly 50 tonnes of humanitarian aid to destination of Haiti, hit by a major earthquake of 7.2 on the Richter scale, last August 14 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34479-haiti-flash-magnitude-72-earthquake-in-the-nippes.html

Note that the frigate also carries a Panther helicopter from the 36F Flotilla and 25 soldiers from the 33rd Marine Infantry Regiment.

The following were loaded on board the frigate on Tuesday August 17 :

  • 14 tonnes of essential goods provided by the American-Caribbean Regional Intervention Platform of the French Red Cross in partnership with the crisis and support center of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs;
  • 18 tonnes of freight (25 pallets of water) supplied by the Bernard Hayot / Carrefour group;
  • 15 tonnes of freight from the local authority of Martinique (drinking water).

In addition, in partnership with the French NGO Tulipe, specializing in pharmaceutical equipment, the Crisis and Support Center of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs will send 30 cases of emergency drugs to Haiti, (1.7 ton) which will be donated by the French Embassy in Port-au-Prince to partner organizations in the health sector.

The Frigate "Germinal" which set sail on Wednesday August 18, 2021 is expected in Haiti this Friday August 21.

In addition, French civil security has proposed sending a water purification module with 40 people and 22 tons of equipment.

As President Émmanuel Macron declared, "France will continue to stand by Haiti and its people." https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34512-haiti-earthquake-rain-of-messages-of-sympathy-part-2.html
