International News: More than 95,000 people flee Port-au-Prince in a month amidst crisis in Haiti

Posted: Saturday, April 13, 2024. 1:31 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The United Nations say that about 95,000 people fled gang violence in Port-au-Prince since early March.

The United Nations International Organization for Migration (IOM) reported that insecurity is “pushing more and more people to leave the capital to find refuge in provinces, taking the risks of passing through gang-controlled routes.”

Haiti faces a severe humanitarian crisis fueled by gang violence.

Violence intensified in late February as they sought to oust Prime Minister Ariel Henry, who announced last month he would step down to allow the formation of an interim government.

IOM’s report noted that about 58% of those leaving the Capital are headed towards Haiti’s southern region, which already hosts more than 116,000 displaced people.

“Provinces do not have sufficient infrastructures and host communities do not have sufficient resources that can enable them to cope with these massive displacement flows coming from the capital,” the IOM said.

Haiti has suffered grinding poverty and political instability for years.
