Haiti - Insecurity : Disabled people from Foyer St-Vincent attacked by armed men

The Office of the Secretary of State (Genard Joseph) for the Integration of People with Disabilities (BSEIPH) is deeply concerned by the deterioration of the living conditions of people with disabilities in the metropolitan area.

For several months, the Office has received alerts concerning a considerable number of displaced people with disabilities.

Every day the situation deteriorates a little more, this is the case of a group of disabled people staying at the Foyer St Vincent who suffered attacks this week from heavily armed individuals and who had to flee to save their lives… they are now at bay, without any destination and without a roof…

The BSEIPH thanks the Haitian National Police who made an armored vehicle available to allow people fleeing the Foyer St Vincent to recover their personal belongings; he also thanks OFATMA for offering means of transport to facilitate the movement of victims to another location. A special thank you to the Town Hall of Pétion-ville which is finalizing the steps to welcome the displaced people from the Foyer St Vincent in a former space belonging to the State which formerly housed an orphanage.
