Aid trickling into devastated Haiti
Devastated Haiti still waiting for aid
Promised aid has not been delivered, Haitian government tells Economic and Social Council at UN meeting.
Less than two per cent of promised reconstruction aid for quake-devastated Haiti has been delivered, claimed the Haitian government during a recent UN meeting.
Six months after the 7.0 earthquake struck the country and devastated two million lives, Haiti is still awaiting promised aid.
Oxfam has revealed to Marie Claire that only a fragment of the relief effort has been realised. Rubble still clogs the streets, only two per cent of needs in reconstruction have been met, and available sanitation remains low, making the risk of an outbreak of water borne diseases high.
Such is the trauma that still envelops the land that the place looks like the earthquake struck yesterday, said the Mayor of Leogane.
While the country has received a considerable amount of aid in the last six months, most noticeably from Medecins Sans Frontieres, still only a fraction of the recovery process have been completed.
The natural elements are certainly hampering relief efforts. Today, hurricane winds and heavy rains hit the UN camp Croix-des-Bouqets, causing widespread damage and destruction to the temporary accommodation erected.
But lack of monetary aid is the biggest cause of delays in reconstruction. The government says the international donors have simply not come up with money they had earlier promised.
