UN calls for action on food in Haiti

The organization that watches over the rights of Haitians abroad declared that among them are 148 pregnant women and 621 unaccompanied minors.

In addition, the agency denounced the ill-treatment allegedly inflicted by the Dominican authorities against Haitian nationals, since cases of sexual assaults against women have been reported. Likewise, the migrants denounced that they are stripped of their identification documents.

In this sense, the GARR Communications Officer, Sam Guillaume, urged local authorities to take urgent measures to prevent these irregularities.

According to figures from GARR and the Dominican General Directorate of Migration, some 78,000 Haitians have been returned so far this year. This occurs in the midst of a context of increasing violence in Haiti.

International organizations, such as the UN Committee for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, ask the countries of the region to stop deporting these migrants.
