BAI and IJDH’s Advocacy Work Helps Secure $10 Million from U.S. Congress in Support of Cholera Justice in Haiti
Last month, the U.S. Congress included $10 million for Cholera elimination in the Fiscal Year 2018 appropriations bill, which signed by President Donald Trump despite his reluctance to support the United Nations New Approach to cholera in Haiti through its Multi-Partner Trust Fund.
BAI and IJDH urge the UN to consult the cholera victims to decide on the best way to invest the dollars raised on their behalf. Buy Your ticket today to help us:
- Keep the pressure on the UN until it delivers on its promise to raise $400 million to eliminate cholera in Haiti and compensate the victims;
- Win justice for victims of rape while addressing the systemic issues that make women vulnerable to sexual assault; and
- Stand up for Haitians in the U.S. targeted by President Trump’s racist immigration policies.
IJDH Is Leading the International Effort to Hold UN and other NGOS Accountable to Haitian People
After IJDH’s Executive Director Brian Concannon briefed the United Kingdom Parliament on the Oxfam scandal and the need for accountability in the humanitarian aid sector, a coalition of lawyers from the Disaster Law Project (DLP) and Doughty Street Chambers join IJDH for a joint submission to the UK Parliament International Development Committee (IDC) inquiry on sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) and related misconduct in the humanitarian aid sector. “The submission sets out key changes necessary to establish effective safeguarding processes and strengthen accountability in the sector, and calls for an independent, external sector-wide inquiry,” the lawyers said in a press release after the submission.
We could not have done what we have been doing to promote justice and democracy in Haiti without your generous donations. Join us in New York on May 2nd to laugh while supporting BAI and IJDH’s advocacy and legal work in Haiti.
