By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, the United Nations Security Council will vote on a Kenyan-led mission aiming to bring stability to Haiti.
Haiti is suffering a severe humanitarian crisis fueled by gang violence.
The Associated French Press reports that armed gangs have taken over parts of the country.
Since last year, Haitian Prime Minister Ariel Henry and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres have been calling for international support.
Earlier this year, Kenya volunteered to lead the force and send 1,000 personnel.
Once approved, the mission would initially be sent for one year, with a review after nine months.
The mission aims to provide “operational support to the Haitian National Police, including building its capacity through the planning and conduct of joint security support operations” and will work to “counter gangs and improve security conditions in Haiti,” a draft resolution says.
The United States recently proposed $100 million in support for Haiti.
