PIH’s Response to Cholera in Haiti

PIH’s Response to Cholera in Haiti | The Total Sanitation Campaign in Haiti | Scoop.it

Last week, the United Nations acknowledged its role in the outbreak of cholera in Haiti, which began in October 2010. Since then, the epidemic has killed nearly 10,000 people; hundreds of thousands more have become seriously ill.

And it’s not over: There have been 26,000 reported cases of cholera in Haiti so far this year.

The U.N. plans to present its cholera response plan in two months, but people are dying now. Please help us fight this epidemic today. Your gift will help us care for cholera patients, support vaccinations, increase our water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) efforts, and improve infrastructure to provide safe drinking water for more people.

L'UNICEF apporte un soutien aux personnes victimes des intempéries

L'UNICEF apporte un soutien aux personnes victimes des intempéries | The Total Sanitation Campaign in Haiti | Scoop.it

Les pluies diluviennes qui se sont déversées sur tout le pays, ont causé des pertes humaines et matérielles, notamment dans le département du Nord. En soutien aux efforts de l'Etat haïtien, l'UNICEF a déployé une équipe sur le terrain pour appuyer les équipes de la Direction de la protection civile (DPC) dans l'assistance aux familles affectées. 

Afin de couvrir les besoins immédiats l'UNICEF fournit, en liaison avec le Coordonnateur technique départemental du Nord de la Direction de la Protection Civile, un appui d'urgence de 1,000 Jerrycan ; 5,000 kits d'hygiène et 50,000 Aquatabs. Étant donné la vulnérabilité des enfants et des familles, 5,000 couvertures et près de 5,000 biscuits à haute valeur nutritive sont aussi distribués. 

Toutes nos pensées vont aux familles des victimes. La nature peut être cruelle et aujourd'hui nous devons agir pour éviter une dégradation de la situation. En cas d'urgence les jeunes enfants sont encore plus vulnérables qu'en temps normal. Pour les protéger contre des maladies il sera primordial d'assurer des précautions d'hygiène. » a déclaré M. Edouard Beigbeder, Représentant de l'UNICEF en Haïti.
