Singapore Red Cross commits S$41,000 in aid to hurricane-hit Haiti

SINGAPORE: The Singapore Red Cross (SRC) announced on Friday (Oct 7) that it is disbursing US$30,000 (S$41,000) in aid to Haiti, after the Carribean country was hit by the region's worst storm in almost a decade.
Hurricane Matthew has reportedly left more than 300 dead in the island nation, with 50 killed in a single town and reports of "complete destruction" in the island's south.
In a media release, SRC said the funds would help bring "much-needed support" in the areas of first aid and emergency health care, psychosocial support , treatment of water, sanitation assistance, cleaning and personal hygiene items, insecticide-treated mosquito nets and other disease prevention and control activities.
It will also go towards helping the local community build emergency shelters or make basic repairs to their damaged houses, as continuous heavy rains are expected and may cause life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides, the humanitarian organisation added.
Locally, the Haiti Red Cross has mobilised its volunteers trained in water sanitation and hygiene promotion, health, search and rescue and first aid to help in the worst-hit areas including Sud, Grand Anse, Nippes, Sud-Est, Ouest and Nord-Ouest of Haiti, SRC said.
SRC chief Benjamin William said the organisation was "deeply saddened" to see the devastation caused by the disaster in Haiti.
"While there are challenges in reaching the affected communities as the storm continues to batter the region, the Haiti Red Cross and the international Red Cross Movement are well-prepared to meet the needs of survivors with a strong network of staff and volunteers.”
