Haiti: 3 hospitals receives 6,000 gallons of fuel by UNICEF

UNICEF’s Chief Communications officer to Haiti informed that 3 major hospitals had received 6,000 gallons of fuel. Ndiaga Seck stated that there would be noticeable hike in the supplies in future as the problem also increases in-country.

Mr Seck said that they had made this assistance available to the people as the island has been experiencing some severe problems and criminal activities in daily life.

Several hospitals on the island are facing severe problems like an acute shortage of fuel. Criminal gangs blocked the major roads leading to ports that are responsible for holding fuel supplies. This shortage further affected many women and children being treated across Haiti in hospitals.

UNICEF recently came in contact with a local firm to provide around 10,000 gallons of fuel to four major hospitals in Port-of-Prince. The organization promises to deliver more support as its efforts to help children access clean water after the August 2021 earthquake snatched away from their fundamental rights.

The recent earthquake also affected over 2000 people and damaged hundreds of infrastructures on the island. This resulted in bad outcomes and left thousands of people homeless.

Haiti has also been experiencing the worst crisis after the assassination of President Jovenel Moise in late June this year. In recent times the gangs have been asking for justice and kept major roadways blocked.

Some gangs are also asking Prime Minister Ariel Henry to resign as the country enters critical political instability.
