Haitians to U.N. Security Council: Justice for the Victims of Cholera, Child Support for Peacekeepers’ Abandoned Children

The United Nations Security Council ended a three-day visit to Haiti on Saturday, after hearing a variety of concerns during the meetings  with President Jovenel Moïse, Haitian lawmakers,  Haitian civil society and cholera advocates. Among the issues Haitians raised were the compensation for the cholera victims, child support for the abandoned children fathered by U.N. peacekeeping soldiers and the desire for a new, smaller mission to be Haiti’s last.

On cholera, the Security Council delegation reaffirmed its support for the new efforts undertaken by the UN.
