THE GOVERNMENT ON THE GROUND, WITH THE POPULATION
(Haiti Libre) -
Friday, President Michel Martelly accompanied by his wife Sophia Martelly, the Prime Minister, Laurent Lamothe and Rosanne Auguste, the Minister responsible for human rights and the fight against extreme poverty, proceeded with a distribution of food aid to thousands of people affected by the passage of Sandy.
It was to Village de Dieu, near the neighborhood of Martissant, that started the caravan of social assistance of the Haitian State. Thousands of families have received food kits (Panye Solidarite) [rice, maize, peas, oil, salt, treated water], from a new program, "Ede Pep", designed to be implemented in disadvantaged areas and municipalities with areas of extreme poverty, according to the vulnerability map.
The population did not hide its satisfaction and showed their gratitude to the Government. For his part, the Head of State reiterated his commitment to support the Haitian people in every situation as difficult as may be, and promised to work on measures to provide sustainable solutions to the many problems confronted by the Haitian population.
Note : The Fund of Economic and Social Assistance (FAES) is the body that runs the majority of programs grouped under the label of "Ede Pep".
