Haitian Health Minister Says Donor Countries Failing To Deliver Cholera Aid

“Most donor countries have failed to deliver on their promise to help Haiti fight cholera, making it difficult to combat the disease, reports … quoted Haitian Health Minister Florence Duperval Guillaume as saying on Thursday,” Xinhua reports. “Some 238 million dollars in promised aid were never delivered, Guillaume said, adding she was also waiting to find out how much aid would be earmarked for Haiti by a new U.N. program that will also help the Dominican Republic, which shares the Island of Hispaniola with its embattled neighbor,” the news agency writes, adding, “‘The prime minister will appoint the representatives on Haiti’s behalf in coming days. But at this stage we have not received resources from the United Nations,’ said Guillaume” (11/21).
