Haiti to receive millions from Canada to help with security and other projects – caribbeannationalweekly.com

Haiti is to receive millions of dollars to help with security and other projects.
The funds are coming from the Canadian government, following a recent virtual  three-hour meeting led by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Also present were  foreign  ministers from more than 12 countries — including the United States, France and Mexico — and United Nations representatives.
“The increase in violence is only worsening the already precarious humanitarian situation,” said Trudeau, ahead of the closed-door meeting. “We must work together to restore stability, and to protect the safety and well-being of the Haitian people.”
The foreign ministers  expressed deep concern about Haiti’s instability since the July 2021 assassination of President Jovenel Moïse.
Canada pledged US$50 million, while other countries promised to improve Haiti’s security to support efforts to hold successful elections.
Haiti’s Prime Minister Ariel Henry and Jean Victor Généus, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Religious Communities, along with foreign ministers of like-minded democracies and high-level officials from multilateral organizations, discussed ways that the international community can support Haitians in implementing sustainable solutions to tackle growing insecurity, strengthen political dialogue and improve aid coordination.
Projects supported through this investment include, but are not limited to the following:
Canada and Haiti have long been united by a deep friendship, which is reinforced by a common language, the close ties between their people and a long history of cooperation.
