Haiti: Kim Ives for better humanitarian response after Matthew

NEW YORK CITY, New York, US (sentinel.ht) – The editor of Haiti Liberte, Kim Ives, said he was hoping the humanitarian response to Hurricane Matthew not be carried out in the way the response was after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

As the death toll jumped from 108 to 264 Thursday evening, Ives said distrust of the Haitian people from those in Washington has offered responses that are not well carried out, “piecemeal” and resulting in waste and confusion.

“…one hopes things will be handled different than the earthquake. What happened is the international community, I should say Washington, in particular, seems unable to trust the Haitian government to care for its people and so they work through NGOs, you get a piecemeal response and the result is a lot of waste, a lot of confusion, and things not carried out well. Hopefully this time they’ve learned some lessons and trust the Haitian people to put themselves out of this trouble on their own.” – Kim Ives

The journalist told Canada TV America host, Mike Walter, that he hoped the passing of Matthew is not used as pretext to prolong a United Nations occupation that has already exceeded 12 years and that the aid is not used by predators to make money off of others’ distress.

Haiti is currently suffering from a tumultuous political climate, fighting a cholera outbreak and recovering from the 2010 earthquake. At the time of this publishing reports were that the death toll may have exceeded 300.
