The Organization "Our little brothers and sisters" (NPFS) and the "Saint-Luc Foundation" (FSL) welcome the Press in general and the Haitian population as a whole. They take this opportunity to bring to the known to all, that the Saint-Damien and Saint-Luc hospitals, and the physiotherapy center Saint Germaine are threatened with the cessation of their activities due to fuel. In fact, due to the regular unavailability of fuel on the national territory for several months and due to the recent social unrest in the country, our strategic fuel reserve available at Fondation Saint-Luc's "SMART GRID" energy plant, supplying these two hospitals and the Physiotherapy Center in electricity, is almost sold out. We are launching an SOS to major fuel suppliers to enable the crucial bailout from our reserve for ensuring continuation of pediatric services for more than 153 children hospitalized and for more than 47 pregnant women in the maternity ward of the Saint-Damien hospital; treatment urgent and inpatient care for more than 70 adults including in-hospital trauma care St. Luke's. In the absence of an immediate save, we will have little choice but to observe the shutdown next assistance services at the level of the two hospitals (Saint-Luc and Saint-Damien) and the Center of San Germaine Physiotherapy of NPFS. In addition, the availability of our employees are strongly affected by the impact of this latest fuel crisis on transportation in common. From the above, we appeal to state authorities, the private enterprise sector and the individuals, in order to quickly facilitate a fuel delivery corridor not only for Saint-Luc and Saint-Damien hospitals, but also to all hospitals affected by this crisis persistent fuel supply.
