Spain Delivers Additional Storm Aid to Haiti

PORT-AU-PRINCE – A second aircraft from Spain carrying humanitarian aid intended for areas of Haiti pounded last week by Hurricane Matthew arrived on Friday.

The plane, which also transported a consignment from the UN World Food Program, brought 13 tons of water-purification equipment from Spanish foreign-aid agency AECID’s regional logistics center in Panama.

The first relief shipment from Spain reached Port-au-Prince on Wednesday.

That aircraft was loaded with 12 tons of supplies donated by the Spanish Red Cross, Medicos del Mundo (Doctors of the World) and Oxfam Intermon, including medications, hygiene products, water-resistant tarps and mosquito nets.

The Spanish government has been in touch with Haitian authorities from the start of the current emergency, the AECID office in this capital said.

AECID said it will continue to coordinate with the Haitian government, UN officials and Spanish NGOs as Haiti embarks on the process of recovery from Matthew.

Matthew left 546 people dead and more than 300 others injured, according to the latest bulletin from the Haitian government, while some 175,000 residents were forced from their homes.

But first responders and local officials say the death toll is in excess of 800.
