Challenge

Violent clashes in Haiti due to harsh protests against the Government. The situation is becoming dramatic and the country is in an emergency. There are already several deaths on the streets of Port-au-Prince. With the riots expanding, the fuel price increase is creating an escalation of tension. NPH and the Saint Luc Foundation's team are helping the population by distributing water with tanker trucks, bean bags and rice because supplies are scarce and the population is on the verge of revolt.

Solution

Through regular and widespread action we want to reach as many people as possible. Children of the slums are the most threatened by thirst and hunger. It is a matter of life or Death. The main objective of water and food distribution is to save lives. This intervention program brings immediate and concrete aid to the population exhausted by hunger and thirst. Our teams, well established in the slums, in times of peace intervene on a weekly basis, daily in times of greater emergency.

Long-Term Impact

The daily presence of NPH and St Luc trucks in the streets of Port au Prince will have a positive impact on the population. Families need to be reassured that in spite of the lack of attention they receive from the government, their basic survival vital needs are satisfied. This will help avoid violence and re-establish a normality of some sorts. It is urgent to buy a new water truck to reach more areas of the city and suburbs.
