Jamaica GleanerPORT AU PRINCE, Haiti – The United Nations issued an urgent appeal for increased humanitarian access and resources for Haiti, stating that the humanitarian situation across the French speaking CARICOM country continues to deteriorate “day by day”.

They said this was “due to a spiral of violence, emergencies related to protection, human rights and food insecurity as well as an epidemic of cholera.”

In a statement, following a two day mission, the acting Director of Operations and Advocacy Division of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) Tareq Talahma said “we cannot let Haiti become a forgotten crisis.”

In 2019, protests and unrest in Haiti became a crisis. I traveled to the country to work with humanitarian group BENEFIT HAITI and during this time the country was in complete ruins with fierce protesting of then president, Jovenel Moïse.

Check out some footage:

In the early morning of 7 July 2021, Moïse was assassinated, and his wife Martine was injured during an attack on their private residence in Pétion-Ville. Claude Joseph took control of the country as acting prime minister following the assassination of Moïse.

I have no idea if this is true but I don’t think this would be a great idea. Just a thought.

Do you think this is true or false? Apparently the story is picking up steam.

Haiti Crippled by Violent Anti-Government Protests

Haiti has entered its sixth week of protest demonstrations with tens of thousands demanding the resignation of President Jovenel Moïse.

Massive crowds marched through affluent neighborhoods over the weekend, spilling oil and burning tires while riot police blocked roads.

Haitians have long been fed up with poverty, scarcity and corruption. The country is one of the poorest in the Western Hemisphere with more than half the population living on less than $2.40 a month.
