PLATAFORMA DE INSTITUCIONES INMIGRANTES HAITIANOS Y SUS FAMILIAS EN REPÚBLICA DOMINICANA (PIHF-RD)
Thursday, 20 October 2016 12:44

price serif; color: black;">Viva la Solidaridad dominicano-haitiana, for sale Rechazamos actitud politiquera

pharm serif;">La Plataforma de Instituciones de Inmigrantes Haitianos y sus Familias, en República Dominicana (PIHF-RD), quiere expresar su rechazo absoluto al criterio politiquero, contenido en la posición fijada por legisladores haitiano sobre la presencia en territorio haitiano de militares de la hermana República dominicana.

Nuestra Plataforma lamenta la forma poco amigable, como algunos parlamentarios  haitiano protestaron la presencia de fuerzas militares de la República Dominicana en territorio haitiano. Consideramos que fue un acto descortés, hacia sus vecinos que entendieron la difícil situación por la que está pasando la población haitiana directamente afectada, específicamente de la zona sur del país.

Como ciudadanos haitianos y haitianas que residimos en territorio dominicano, interpretamos la labor realizada por los militares dominicanos, como estrictamente de orden humanitario, sin ningún contenida ofensivo y que además su presencia obedeció a una petición de las autoridades ejecutivas de Haití les hicieron a las autoridades dominicana, debido a la insuficiencia de fuerzas de seguridad haitiana con capacidad de ofrecer las debidas garantías para el traslado de bienes y materiales que las autoridades dominicanas pusieron a disposición del Estado y pueblo haitiano.

Fuerzas militares de países hermanos como Venezuela, Colombia, Estados Unidos de Norteamérica y otros efectivos militares que llevan años en territorio haitiano están involucradas en los traslados y distribución de las ayudas hasta los lugares más afectados por el huracán Matthew.

Las entidades que integran la Plataforma, agradecemos en primer lugar al Presidente Danilo Medina  y al Pueblo dominicano por el gesto solidario que han expresado con la población haitiana en esta ocasión; que no ha sido la única.

También nuestra Plataforma se encuentra complacida con la forma responsable como el Presidente Interino de Haití, Jocelerme Privert, acogió y defendió este acto de desprendimiento de las autoridades dominicana.

A pesar de la existencia de desencuentros históricos, estos momentos difíciles, no han impedido que el pueblo haitiano exprese su solidaridad al pueblo dominicano, en momentos cumbre de la construcción de la dominicanidad, como lo fue, la Restauración de la Independencia dominicana.

La solidaridad del pueblo haitiano esparció, el anhelo de libertad por varios países  de Latinoamérica, este gesto hace que Haití y su pueblo, sea merecedor de la solidaridad de sus hermanos en la región. 

Para nuestra Plataforma, el rechazo de una mano amiga, por un sector del Senado haitiano, no es una decisión que involucra el pueblo haitiano, que es quien en definitiva posee las garantías de la soberanía y la legitimidad de sus representantes.

La solidaridad de República Dominicana con los más afectados de Haití, es correcta y es estratégica, para la armonía entre las dos naciones. Cuando se trata de salvar vidas y de llevar apoyo a los que sufren, el ultra-nacionalismo en ambos lados de la isla debe ceder el paso al humanitarismo solidario.

En estos momentos de extrema dificultad para una parte importante de la población haitiana, los presidentes Medina y Privert han adoptado la mejor salida para ambos pueblos.

La Plataforma, reitera que los militares dominicanos, no llegaron a suelo haitiano en actitud de combate y en ningún momento pusieron en riesgo la integridad del territorio haitiano y su soberanía. La solidaridad entre los dos pueblos, en momentos como el que vive Haití, debe mantenerse ahora y siempre y cuantas veces sea necesaria.

viagra 60mg sans-serif;">LA SENTENCIA 168/13 A TRES AÑOS DE SU DICTAMEN EFECTOS PRESENTE 

EN LA LEY 164/14 

 Han pasado tres años desde que el Tribunal Constitucional (TC) emitió la sentencia 168/13, la cual desnacionalizo y dejó en la apátrida a miles de Dominicanos de ascendencia haitiana. Las presiones  impulsadas por la sociedad civil, los afectados, algunos Estados y organismos internacionales, provocaron que el Estado adoptara y promulgara la ley 169/14 y su Reglamento. El Reglamento es solo aplicable a una de las categorías establecida en la en la referida ley. Cuando hablamos de categorías, nos referimos a clasificaciones de dominicanos/as, a media (dominicanos por error), y dominicanos considerados extranjeros, nacidos en territorio dominicano (aplicando a la nacionalidad dominicana), que es lo que lamentablemente se plasmó en la ley, en vez de que la misma produjera una restitución pura y simple de la nacionalidad a las personas afectadas por la sentencia 168-13 de TC. 

 Ley 169/14, crea los Grupos A y B, a  los cuales llamamos perfiles. 

 Grupo A: hace referencia a personas nacidas en territorio dominicano, de ambos padres extranjeros que fueron inscritas en el registro Civil dominicano. 

 Grupo B:  personas nacidas en territorio dominicano de ambos padres extranjeras, no inscritas en el registro civil dominicanos.  Esta división ha generado una gama de problemáticas de orden legal para las personas afectadas, lo cual ha dado como consecuencia, un grupo de personas bajo la condición  desnacionalizada, y  personas apátridas. 

 PROBLEMÁTICAS QUE CONTINÚAN SEGÚN EL GRUPO O PERFIL 

Grupo A: 

Transcripción del acta de nacimiento: resulta de la entrega de un acta de nacimiento que no corresponde al documento original. El documento original es demandado en nulidad, muchas veces sin la participación de la persona afectada. 

 Trabas para la Declaración de sus hijos en el registro civil, principalmente si es el padre que tiene el documento de identidad “liberado”.  

De acuerdo a datos estadísticos suministrados por la JCE, el grupo A es una población de55 milpersonas, de los cuales unas10 milpersonasaproximadamente han tendido una solución efectiva. Sin embargo la encuesta ENI-2012 hace referencia a las de 200,000 personas. 

 Grupo B

El estimado de ese grupo es de53 milpersonasde las cuales solo se registraron como extranjeros en su propio país, para obtener la nacionalidad en un proceso de naturalización ordinario8,755 personas, tienen documentos de extranjeros expedidos por Rep. Dominicana; por lo que la mayoría aún están sin documento de identidad, ni información sobre que pasara con su situación jurídica, toda vez que aún no está definida. 

 Otros GRUPOS:

No se cuenta con cifras aproximativas de las personas afectadas de la desnacionalización y apatridia que se encuentran bajo la situación que se describe a continuación.  Resulta que La ley 169-14 deja fuera a las personas nacidas después del 2007, presumiendo que están inscritos en los llamados libros extranjerías. Lo cual crea dos complejidades más:Primero  personas no registradas, habiendo nacido en el territorio dominicano antes del 2010 y por ende antes de la promulgación de la ley 169/14, que tenía el fin de solucionar los casos de personas sin identidad.Segundopersonas inscritas en los libros de extranjerías nacidas antes del 2007 y no fueron admitidos para ser registrados en el proceso de  la ley 169/14. 


Para avanzar soluciones prácticas, a la desnacionalización y la apatridia;  proponemos las medidas siguientes:

a) Reconozca y se restituya  de forma plena el derecho a la nacionalidad dominicana, a todos y todas las personas nacidas en territorio dominicano, de conformidad con        el artículo 18.1 y 18.2 de la Constitución Dominicana. 

b) Que el Estado dominicano cumpla las sentencias de la Corte IDH sobre nacionalidad, discriminación y sobre otros casos que ayuden a garantizar de forma igualitaria        los derechos humanos en la Republica Dominicana. 

 c) Que el Estado Dominicano firme y ratifique las convenciones, sobre estatus de la apatridia de las Naciones Unidas y Organización de Estado Americanos,

d) Que se reconozca la competencia del Comité sobre discriminación Racial, para conocer casos individuales. 

e) Que se promulgue la ley sobre igualdad y no discriminación.  

(j) Instalar una Mesa Nacional Permanente de dialogo entre organismos pertinentes del Estado Dominicano, los organismos de la sociedad civil dominicana que trabajan      la temática de los derechos humanos y las personas afectadas directamente, para buscar soluciones en el ámbito interno a los problemas del registro civil.

Desnacionalizacion y Apatridia en Republica Dominicana
Thursday, 11 August 2016 16:22

A lo largo de los años, autoridades en República Dominicana han ido adoptando una serie de prácticas, normas y decisiones judiciales dirigidas a desnacionalizar a las personas nacidas en este país que descienden de migrantes haitianos.

Este proceso de desnacionalización se inició con la práctica de los funcionarios del registro civil de negarse a registrar el nacimiento de hijos e hijas de migrantes haitianos nacidos en República Dominicana. Luego se fue expandiendo y consolidando de forma gradual por medio de la adopción de normas y decisiones judiciales de los demás poderes del Estado dominicano. Al no contar con otra nacionalidad, este proceso ha implicado que decenas de miles de personas hayan quedado apátridas en República Dominicana.

CIDH presenta el informe:
"Situación de derechos humanos en República Dominicana"

Este informe se presenta con la finalidad de analizar la situación de los derechos humanos a la nacionalidad, la personalidad jurídica, la igualdad y la no discriminación, así como otros derechos relacionados, a partir de la situación generada por la sentencia 168/13, dictada el 23 de septiembre de 2013 por el Tribunal Constitucional de República Dominicana. Además, el informe formula recomendaciones encaminadas a colaborar con las autoridades en adaptar las políticas, leyes y prácticas para asegurar que estén conforme con las obligaciones internacionales contraídas voluntariamente por el Estado en materia de derechos humanos.

Privación de la nacionalidad y apatridia a partir de la sentencia 168/13 del Tribunal Constitucional

La sentencia 168/13 del Tribunal Constitucional estableció en 2013 que sólo se consideran como nacionales las personas nacidas en territorio dominicano de padres dominicanos o residentes legales.

Esta interpretación se aplicó en forma retroactiva a todas las personas nacidas entre 1929 y 2010: privando arbitrariamente de su nacionalidad dominicana a cientos de miles de personas de ascendencia haitiana, y creó una situación de apatridia nunca antes vista en América.

El criterio establecido en la sentencia 168/13, así como las medidas que se han adoptado para dar cumplimiento a dicha sentencia, han representado una etapa crucial en un proceso de revisionismo histórico promovido por autoridades dominicanas, tendiente a consolidar una interpretación que establece que las personas nacidas en República Dominicana de padres haitianos en situación migratoria irregular no tenían derecho a la nacionalidad dominicana.

Crédito Fotográfico: Daniel Cima para la CIDH

 

La sentencia 168/13 como una privación arbitraria de la nacionalidad 

Arbitrariedad 

Se las privó arbitrariamente de la nacionalidad porque no son migrantes, son personas que nacieron en República Dominicana cuando se aplicaba el concepto de jus soli, es decir, que cuando alguien nacía en ese país, se le otorgaba la nacionalidad. Tan es así, que las autoridades correspondientes les dieron documentos. Pero luego de la sentencia, se los quitaron.

 

Discriminación Estructural 

El fundamento que subyace a la decisión del Tribunal Constitucional es un contexto de discriminación estructural principalmente basada en criterios raciales y étnicos contra personas de origen haitiano.

 

Desproporción 

Esta situación ha afectado de forma desproporcionada a las personas de ascendencia haitiana, quienes frecuentemente son identificadas como tales, correcta o incorrectamente, con base en el origen nacional o la situación migratoria de los padres, el color de la piel, la capacidad lingüística o los apellidos, constituyendo una violación al derecho a la igualdad y a la no discriminación.

 

La facultad de los Estados de determinación de nacionalidad está limitada por su deber de prevenir, evitar y reducir la apatridia. 

Corte IDH, Caso de las niñas Yean y Bosico v. República Dominicana. Sentencia de 8 de septiembre de 2005. 

El informe también abarca las violaciones a los derechos humanos de los migrantes haitianos en relación a operativos migratorios y debido proceso; el acceso a la justicia y garantías de debido proceso para personas dominicanas de ascendencia haitiana.

Health In Bateyes
Wednesday, 29 January 2014 10:25

Health

Improvements in water, sanitation and hygiene practices and infrastructure may be one of the most important and cost-effective methods for decreasing the burden of infectious diseases. The Dominican Republic is particularly vulnerable to endemic and epidemic diarrheal illnesses due to decreased rates of access to improved drinking water sources along its border with Haiti. The major causes of under-five mortality include acute respiratory infections (70%), isolated fever as a proxy for Malaria (68%) and diarrhea (55%). Bateyes in the Dominican Republic have a higher infant mortality rate (41/1000) than the rest of the country. And this is where MOSCTHA concentrate its work. With two mobile care units MOSCTHA provides free medical consultation to those living in bateyes.

MEET LA HISPANIOLA
Monday, 18 November 2013 00:45

MEET LA HISPANIOLA

MOSTCHA-USA presents: “MEET LA HISPANIOLA” A Photography Exhibition

 New York, NY, November 18, 2013: In the Dominican Republic, thousands of Dominicans of Haitian decent are living in limbo. They have been denied the fundamental right of citizenship, thus depriving them access to basic needs and services such as health care, education, pension privileges, and even marriage licenses.

 

MOSCTHA’s previous photo exhibition “No Human Being is Illegal” helped spread public awareness in the New York tri-state area and in the international community about the daily impact of the under-publicized statelessness crisis in the Dominican Republic. Since then, the Dominican Republic has not stopped sharing the spotlight on the news.

 

The two countries that inhabit the island of Hispaniola, Haiti and the Dominican Republic may have an agenda of their own but in reality their struggles cross each other’s path. Despites the media’s exacerbating images that differentiate both countries, they share a lot in culture, history, politics, and in genome.  Both countries face deep internal problems, Haiti for the growing poverty and the Dominican Republic for human rights abuses. The growing poverty in Haiti caused many to seek refuge in the Dominican Republic. Unfortunately, the Dominican immigration system works unfavorably towards Haitians. 99% of those subject to mistreatment in the Dominican Republic are Dominicans of Haitian descent.

 

MOSCTHA is breaking the silence once again with its upcoming event: Meet la Hispaniola: one island, one border, two different countries. The non-profit organization will be showcasing its most intriguing photos taken in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The event will be held on Friday, November 22, 2013, 6pm at Dacia Gallery in New York City.

 

Our featured activist & humanitarian photographers, Edison Suero, Keith Dunlop, Talia Frenkel and Aliya Naumoff, have travelled through the mystic areas of Haiti and the unpublicized villages of the Dominican Republic to photograph the lives of those in poverty.

 

MOSCTHA will have prints available for anyone who wishes to purchase them. Your participation will help MOSCTHA support the many educational, health and citizenship program currently taking place in these countries.

 

MOSCTHA INC. events are open to the public and everyone is encouraged to participate.

Reaccion de MOSCTHA a la Sentencia del Tribunal Constitucional
Wednesday, 09 October 2013 14:05

MOSCTHAEl Movimiento Socio Cultural para los trabajadores Haitianos, Inc. (MOSCTHA),  afirma que la decisión tomada por el Tribunal Constitucional, constituye un ilustrado manual para la desnacionalización y creación de personas apátridas en la Rep. Dominicana.

 

La sentencia de esta alta corte, del pasado 23 de septiembre, desconoce la nacionalidad dominicana, adquirida por más de 250 mil hombres y mujeres descendientes de extranjeros (haitianos), presuntamente ilegales y que están de transito por el territorio dominicano. Esta decisión probablemente, no tiene antecedente en la historia de la judicial del mundo.

 

Con argumentos poco convincentes los honorables jueces interpretaron normas que aparentan darle facultad de jueces “insulares”. Con esta decisión, esta alta corte de la Rep. Dominicana, cree haber cerrado un capitulo de más de 97 años de presencia de trabajadores migratorios haitianos y sus familias en territorio dominicano, que ingresaron a este territorio bajo la absoluta autorización de organismos del Estado dominicano, el poder ejecutivo, en apenas unas 147 páginas. Además de cuestionar y burlar a la Comisión IDH, y a la corte IDH en cuanto a la decisión da en el 2005 en el caso Jean Y Bosico.

 

Los enviados al paredón de la muerte civil, están encabezado por la Sra. Juliana Deguis Pierre, una joven de 29 años, nacida en el municipio de Yamasa, Batey Los Jovillos, madre de 4 hijos, todos sin nombre ni apellidos. Los padres de Juliana, quienes aun están con vida, fueron trabajadores migratorios haitianos cortadores de la caña, para el Central azucarero Rio Haina, propiedad del Consejo Estatal del Azúcar, Por lo que todas las actuaciones de estos ingenios pasan a ser actuaciones del Estado dominicano y eso le genera responsabilidades. Sus padres han vivido y viven en el mismo lugar, desde que fueron traídos al país mediante acuerdo interestatal entre la Republica dominicana y la República de Haití.

 

Los argumentos fundamentales de la sentencia dan pena: hijos de padres extranjeros ilegales haitianos que están de transito y que al declarar el nacimiento de sus vástagos, aportaron como documentos de identidad unas fichas. Cabe recalcar que estos documentos que fueron admitidos como buenos y validos por los oficiales del Estado civil durante décadas, cuando estos dependían del presidente de la Republica y consecuentemente estos actos fueron realizados bajo la tutela del principal ejecutivo de la nación.

 

En esta decisión draconiana, los máximos guardianes de la constitucionalidad del país protegieron la Carta magna, haciendo trizas los derechos fundamentales, no solamente de Juliana Deguis Pierre, sino por extensión a una cantidad ilimitada de personas, que se sospecha que están inscrita en el registro civil por supuestos padres ilegales o que están de “transito según los criterios de los neo-nacionalistas”.

 

La sociedad dominicana, nunca conocerá la cifra exacta de las víctimas del genocidio civil constitucional del 23 de septiembre del 2013, como tampoco ha podido conocer la cifra exacta del exterminio perpetrado en contra de miles de ciudadanos dominicanos con ascendencia haitiana y haitianos que habitaban en la frontera dominicana, en año 1937.

 

La sentencia ordena  a la Junta Central Electoral efectuar una auditoría minuciosa de los libros-registros de nacimientos del Registro Civil de la República Dominicana desde el 21 de junio de 1929 hasta la fecha, y elaborar al menos 2 listados. Este trabajo ya fue iniciado de facto por la JCE desde hace varios años, ahora tiene el aval de una sentencia. Los nacidos a partir del año 1982, ya fueron listados y contabilizados, la cifra ofrecida supera más de 22 mil personas. La finalidad de estos listados, nadie lo puede predecir, cuando estas actividades estarán a cargo de personas como los señores Roberto Rosario y José Ricardo Taveras, con demostrada animadversión hacia las personas dominicanas con ascendencia haitiana.

 

La sentencia no indica cual será la nacionalidad extranjera, de las personas cuyos nombres estarán en el listado que se denominará “Lista de extranjeros irregularmente inscritos en el Registro Civil de la República Dominicana”, en la práctica estamos frente a un verdadera limpieza étnica anti-haitiana.

 

La interpretación dada por el Tribunal Constitucional al término o condición “tránsito”, es un verdadero absurdo, ya que tanto disposiciones legales nacionales, como jurisprudencias internacionales han definido con claridad meridiana  el sentido que debe tener este término.

 

Acaso estaban en tránsito, los descendientes de libaneses, italianos los españoles, los cocolos, turcos, chinos y boricuas que emigraron a esta isla desde los albores de la independencia nacional y que decidieron procrear su familia aquí y muchos de ellos al igual que los braceros haitianos, descansan para siempre en suelo dominicano. Esta resolución que fabrica una amplia colonia de apátridas. Traerá consecuencias para el prestigio del estado de derechos dominicano.

 

A partir de esta sentencia los aparentes, reales y supuestos afectados serán perseguidos, quedando reforzada la negación de sus derecho a un nombre y una nacionalidad, el derecho a la salud, a la educación, perderán sus empleos,  y podrían perder sus bienes y propiedades, por falta de calidad y acceso para reclamarlo en justicia. Y a su vez aumentara la carga social, pues al abrir la investigación de todos los libros muchos ciudadanos quedaran en inhabilitación, suspensión y anulación mientras termine la supuesta investigación, por tanto no podrán ser productivos a la sociedad, lo que generara gran inestabilidad y un nuevo impuesto con el alegatorio de que hay que cubrir los gastos.

 

Dado en Santo Domingo, el 30 de Septiembre del 2013, Rep. Dom.

Hundreds now 'Backpacking to school'
Tuesday, 03 September 2013 06:27

Hundreds of kids in the Dominican Republic, who may not have otherwise had the opportunity, are now backpacking to school. The school term is already in full swing and now children from underprivileged families in some of the country's most rural communities have access to school supplies and are now able to fully participate in classroom activities. 

 

Through the diligent work of Mosctha's education department, we identified and were able to distribute school supplies in five different Bateyes (sugar workers' towns) of the Dominican Republic that would most benefit from this year's campaign: Batey El Cano, Batey Guasumita, Batey Los Jovillos, Batey Los Cazabes and Batey Hato Viejo. We drove about two hours from the capital Santo Domingo to get to these towns. But our campaign doesn't stop there. Mosctha's next stop is Petit Goave, Haiti where we will again distribute supplies that will benefit about 300 kids.

 

Speaking with parents in the various Bateyes, the major concern seemed to be the same- lack of money to buy school supplies to send their children to school. At least one parent from each community gave a short interview outlining just how important receiving school supplies were in alleviating some of their burdens. Keep checking back as we plan on bringing you those interviews soon.

 

The distribution process was very effective, particularly because of the assistance of community leaders. Mosctha would also like to acknowledge the volunteers, who were able to collect, pack and distribute supplies. The effort benefited 500 students in the Dominican Republic alone, while hundreds more also stand to benefit in Haiti. The general feeling in the Bateyes was that the supplies and show of goodwill motivated the kids to get back to school.

Indeed, the Backpack to School campaign has been a success and Mosctha remains committed to developing projects that will improve the sociocultural, moral, and academic standards of communities in the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

Backpacking to the new school year
Thursday, 18 July 2013 11:50

Backpack to School 

 

Step 2, everyone.

 

By now, you may be aware of our Backpack to School campaign. It should be an exciting time getting ready for the new school term, right? Ok, maybe/maybe not. Kids around the world probably wish the summer break could last forever. Notwithstanding some children's keen desire to remain in summer vacation mode 365 days a year, September is right around the corner and we are working to get school supplies to the underpriviledged children in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

 

Why school supplies?

Quite simply, a lot of students do not even have a single notebook to write in. Not a SINGLE notebook. We are proud that we were able to supply 50 backpacks and hundreds of supplies last year but now we are going to up the ante by supporting 1000 children!

 

How can YOU help?

Mosctha has partnered with Staples at 675 3rd Ave, New York, NY and will be having a drive at that location on FRIDAY 19TH, 2013. You can stop by and purchase a backpack and supplies. There will be a sample just to give an idea of the supplies that will be needed. If you are not in the area, you can make a donation through PayPal by clicking here:  Our drop off location is at 390 Broadway, New York NY and where you can drop off your supplies from August 1st through August 15th.

Backpack To School Campaign
Saturday, 06 July 2013 16:11

Mosctha's education program provides schools with qualified teachers, sufficient teaching materials and school supplies. This summer, we will be focusing our efforts to ensure students from disadvantaged families in Haiti and the Dominican Republic get the extra push they need to excel in school by providing them with stationary and other school supplies. The 2012 campaign saw Mosctha being able to supply children with 50 backpacks and 400 packages of school supplies with the help of donors.

 

We will intensify this year's campaign to be able to send 1,000 children to school fully prepared. Our efforts are guided by the principle that every child should have the benefit of primary education. We hope to alleviate the burden of some parents tasked with the decision of whether to send their children to school or to feed them.

THOUSANDS TO BENEFIT FROM VITAMINS
Monday, 24 June 2013 12:12

photoMosctha's next mission: providing Vitamin A(id)- pun intended. health017I6583

 

Thousands of women and children in the Dominican Republic and Haiti will be the beneficiaries of multivitamins and Vitamin A supplements in a bid to curb deficiencies on the island of Hispaniola. Vitamin A is an essential in order to maintain proper eye health and vision, growth, immune function, and survival. 

 As part of our continued commitment to improve the standard of living of people living in the Dominican Republic and Haiti, we have partnered with Vitamin Angels to secure:

 1,000 doses of 100,000 IU vitamin A for children 6-11 months (enough for 1000 children)

 2,000 doses of 200,000 IU vitamin A for children 12-59 months (enough for 1000 children)

 2,000 doses of 400 mg Albendazole for children 12-59 months who receive vitamin A supplements (enough for 1000 children)

 5 cases of multivitamins for pregnant and lactating women (170,100 doses, enough for 466 women)

 

A staggering 32% of pre-school aged children suffer from vitamin A deficiency in Haiti alone, according to statistics released by Micronutrient Initiative. Many countries who struggle with vitamin A deficiencies are also endemic with soil-transmitted helminthes (STHs) or “intestinal worms”--which contributes to child undernutrition. Providing deworming tablets to children together with vitamin A is a simple, effective way to improve a child’s vitamin A status and overall health.

 

An outline of the facts provided by Vitamin Angels stated: "In countries experiencing vitamin A deficiency, providing supplemental nutrition in the form of a vitamin A capsule every 4 to 6 months is vital for good infant and child health, growth, and development and is accepted as an essential part of  child survival programs. One capsule of vitamin A given at least twice a year to children 6 to 59 months of age can reduce under-5 child mortality by 24%."

 

Trained healthcare providers will be responsible for providing vitamins to children and infants.

MOSCTHA Inc., to Host Panel Discussion on Statelessness in the Dominican Republic
Monday, 18 February 2013 23:21

No Human Being is Illegal

 

NEW YORK February 19, 2013 – As part of its ongoing campaign to raise awareness about the growing stateless population in the Dominican Republic, MOSCTHA Inc. will host a discussion at Columbia University March 2 featuring leading experts in the medical, legal, human rights and history fields.

 

The discussion, hosted by MOSCTHA at Columbia University Medical Center, is part of the “No Human Being is Illegal” campaign, an effort to highlight the grave conditions in which thousands of people living in the Dominican Republic find themselves. A growing number of people, many of them sons and daughters of Haitian immigrants who were born in the Dominican Republic, are being stripped of citizenship, leaving them living without fundamental rights. On paper they do not exist in the Dominican Republic or in Haiti. As a result, they are denied access to employment, housing, education, and health care. They cannot own property, open a bank account, get married legally, register the birth of a child, and some face long periods of detention, because they cannot prove who they are or where they come from. Put simply, they are functionally stateless.

 

The March 2 discussion will bring together Dominican government representatives and victims who will share their unique perspectives on the roots and consequences of citizenship laws in the country. They will join a panel made up of the following experts:

 

Moderated by: Marlyn Delva,  Associate Dean of the Mailman School of Public Health’s Office of Student Affairs at Columbia University and the Dean of Students.

Maria Bizenny, Lawyer practicing in the Dominican Republic,

Mona Kareen, Arabic Litterature Professor at Binghamton University

Edward Paulino, Asst. Professor in the department of History at CUNY’s John Jay College

Sarnata Reynolds, Statelessness Program Manager at Refugee International

Hosted by: Eric Schulze, Co-founder/Creative, organizer of Thirst DC.

 

MOSCTHA will provide the audience with the opportunity to contribute to the solutions of statelessness, ask questions or express their own views on the issue, and engage in further activism through our “No Human Being Is Illegal” campaign.

 

The campaign has been in full swing since December, when MOSCTHA hosted a two-day symposium aimed at advocating for stateless individuals and influencing legislation. Additionally, MOSCTHA has posted and distributed photographs and educational materials in key public spaces around the New York/New Jersey area as well as initiated vigorous social media outreach through Facebook, Twitter, and their own website.

MOSCTHA to open a newly built clinic in Petit Goave, Haiti (CENSI)
Tuesday, 08 January 2013 09:46

SENSINew York, NY- January 8, 2013: The Socio Cultural Movement for Haitian Workers announced the opening of the new clinic in Petit-Goave, Centre de Sante Integral La Solidarite (CENSI), to be held on January 12, 2013, the third year anniversary of the earthquake that struck the country killing over 300,000 people and leaving over 1 million displaced.

 

In the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, this town continues to lack healthcare services and a hospital for its population exceeding over 13,000 inhabitants MOSCTHA’s initiative of CENSI aims at responding to the difficult health conditions in the Latin American country, which continues to endure a cholera epidemic. The New York Times reported that “the cholera epidemic in Haiti, which began in late 2010, is bad and getting worse” due to the still precarious sanitation system present. Moreover, The Pan American Health Organization has said the disease could have stricken 200,000 to 250,000 people in 2012 and has already killed more than 7,500 since 2010.

 

In an effort to continue improving the health and lives of the most vulnerable people, CENSI will attend to 10 emergency cases and over 40 patients daily. MOSCTHA’s clinic will offer a much-needed service in a department where, according to the World Health Organization, there are 7.1 doctors per 10,000 people.

 

What’s important in all of this is the lasting affect that MOSCTHA wishes to have in the Grand Goave region of Haiti. Aid comes and goes, but true development starts with education. “MOSCTHA focuses on promoting education, developing medical infrastructures in underserved areas and fostering cooperative communities. The goal is to maximize resources to improve the conditions of as many as we can in Haiti. We seek not just to aid, but empower people and their different social and cultural backgrounds,” said MOSCTHA Founder Dr. Joseph Cherubin.

 

"I feel extremely fortunate to be given the opportunity to be part of an organization that has done so much for the Haitian community in both the Dominican Republic and Haiti for so many years. This clinic will make a difference in a community that has been waiting for something to be done since the earthquake in 2010" said MOSCTHA-USA Director, Edison Suero.

 

With the establishment of this new center, MOSCTHA will continue to provide comprehensive health services to vulnerable populations in Haiti, guaranteeing quality services that will improve the lives of many.

No Human Being is Illegal

 

New York, NY, December 4, 2012: In the Dominican Republic, thousands of Dominicans of Haitian descent are living in limbo. They have been denied the fundamental right of citizenship, depriving them access to basic needs and services such as health care, education, pension privileges, and even marriage licenses.

Seven years ago, in August 2004, the Dominican government amended immigration laws and passed Law 285-04 which effectively eliminated birthright citizenship. Consequently, a child born in the Dominican Republic is no longer automatically a citizen; citizenship only goes to those individuals who can prove they have at least one documented parent. This active denationalization of Dominican citizens have created a veritable human rights crisis, condemning thousands to statelessness and vulnerable to labor exploitation, illiteracy, delinquency and human trafficking. Now, entire segments of the population throughout the country cannot get health care. Children cannot attend school.  The police is no longer obligated to protect them, nor will the government give them identification papers; documentation without which you cannot even leave the country that refuses to recognize you.

"No Human Being is Illegal” is an innovative comprehensive campaign aimed at spreading public awareness in the New York and international community about the daily impact of the under-publicized statelessness crisis in the Dominican Republic.

To launch this campaign, MOSCTHA will combine its annual Fundraiser with a Photo Exhibition that will showcase the gripping stories of stateless Dominicans. The event will be held this Saturday, December 8, 2012, at The Gallery Bar, NYC. With your support we will be able to cover the legal fees and court costs of the victims in the Dominican Republic.

In this event we will honor the work of Solange Pierre, a Dominico-Haitian activist who focused her life-time activism on the fight against anti-Haitianismo in the Dominican Republic. She spent the last years of her life resisting against statelessness.
.
No Human Being is Illegal” will culminate with a conference in February 2013, in partnership with Columbia University, which will bring together professional experts in the fields of International Law, Human Rights, and Immigration and Policy; in the hopes of finding solutions to the statelessness problem in the Dominican Republic.


MOSCTHA Inc. events are open to the public. All are encouraged to participate.

MOSCTHA Haiti

Reports of rape and sexual violence have been all too common after the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Nearly 370,000 people remain in displacement camps, according to the U.N. And gruesome reports of violence, inadequate health care and substandard living conditions have painted a picture of horror and hopelessness.

A Human Rights Crisis unfolding in the Dominican Republic
Sunday, 14 October 2012 21:28

The Dominican government is systematically denying citizenship to thousands of people of Haitian descent born on Dominican soil, creating a growing human rights crisis.

No Human Being is Illegal

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic Already living in precarious conditions, Dominico-Haitians who have long been considered Dominican citizens under the country’s laws are now being stripped of their citizenship.

In August 2004, the Dominican government passed Law 285-04, denying citizenship to all children of undocumented migrants. A year later, the Dominican Supreme Court upheld the law and found that it could be applied retroactively, effectively denationalizing every Dominican born to a parents without documentation, regardless of the number of years they’ve lived in the country.

Thousands of Haitians have migrated to the Dominican Republic to work in sugar cane fields and for other jobs. The two countries share the Caribbean island of Hispaniola. Now, the some 250,000 children born in the Dominican Republic are at risk of becoming functionally stateless.

The Dominican government strips citizenship by refusing to issue a certified birth certificate to those it deems might be of questionable heritage.

A birth certificate is needed to do everything from attend school to marry to apply for a passport. In some cases, it is not even possible to secure a mobile phone contract without a certified birth certificate.

Without recognized status as citizens they also are at an increased risk of contracting disease and becoming victims of human trafficking.

MOSTCHA, a leading advocate for the rights of Haitian immigrants and Dominicans of Haitian descent, is working to document and analyze individual cases of denationalization. MOSTCHA will litigate cases against the Dominican government to push for repeal of the current law and to set new judicial precedents in the face of this irresponsible and unjust legislation.

Several thousand cases of denationalization have already been reported, hundreds are already being contested, and hundreds are currently under investigation

As more and more people are refused recognition by the country, the more probable the issue of statelessness will become a veritable humanitarian crisis.

In coming months, MOSCTHA will launch an advocacy campaign to raise awareness of the situation, both in the Dominican Republic and in New York.

Please help us “Break the Silence,” at this year’s annual event at Columbia University in December and check back for updates on our progress.

Turning the Tide Together: AIDS 2012
Sunday, 22 July 2012 22:16

AIDS 2012The HIV epidemic has already killed around 25 million people in the world out of 60 million that are known to be infected. Because AIDS does not discriminate against race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or class, everyone should be aware about the risks. People living in the island of Hispaniola are very vulnerable to the disease because of the already high prevalence. Hispaniola belongs to the region with the second highest adult HIV prevalence in the world.

This is why MOSCTHA made the commitment to help turn the tide against AIDS by attending the XIX International Aids Conference that will take place July 22nd  - 27th in Washington D.C. The conference brings together thousands of people, among them policy makers, scientists, doctors, organization leaders, including MOSCTHA USA leader Edison Suero, MOSCTHA RD Tony Contrera, MOSCTHA Haiti Sherley Ilus Richard and nurse Arrisena Blanc  and other activists determined to end the epidemic.

 

The conference offers the “possibility of beginning to end the AIDS epidemic in our lifetimes.” – The potential is great. With a diverse set of goals like:

 

To engage key, new and non-traditional stakeholders throughout the world in the development of and participation throughout the conference programme, especially those most engaged in the HIV and AIDS response, including women and girls, men who have sex with men, transgender individuals, sex workers, young people, people who use drugs and people involved in prevention or care programmes targeting the incarcerated.

mosctha aids 2012

The conference offers new perspectives, technological advancements and resolutions that will unite victims, doctors, scientists and activists from all over the world and with all kinds of experiences to fight for this global issue. And thanks to the media, we will also be able to stay informed on the topics discussed in the conference through facebook, twitter and the aids2012.org blog, so stay tunned!

This event is brought to us by The International Aids Society in collaboration with the District of Columbia Department of Health, The White House Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP), The Black AIDS Institute, U.S. Positive Women’s Network, National Institutes of Health, HIV Medicine Association of the Infectious Diseases Society of America, UNAIDS, International Community of Women Living with HIV/AIDS,  International Council of AIDS Service Organizations, Global Network of People Living with HIV, Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Coalition and Sidaction.

The Loss of a Great Human Rights Activist
Monday, 05 December 2011 22:39

 

We would like to take this moment to honor the memory of a great leader, activist, and human being: our beloved friend Sonia Pierre.

Honored with the 2010 International Women of Courage Award, Sonia Pierre became an activist at the young age of 13, when she was arrested for being the spokesperson of a group of Haitian sugar-cane cutters who were protesting for better wages and living conditions. Mrs. Pierre eventually founded and directed the Movement for Dominican Women of Haitian Descent (MUDHA), an NGO that launches public education campaigns and legal actions to fight anti-Haitian discrimination in the Dominican Republic and address the issue of statelessness for people unable to reap the benefits and protections of nationality and citizenship.

 

Sonia Pierre and MOSCTHA partnered in many occasions to ensure migrant workers access to food and medicine, as well as to address issues of adolescent pregnancy and the prevention of sexually-transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS. Following the earthquake in Haiti,  her organization was among the first responders, bringing aid across the border into Port-au-Prince and neighboring affected areas .Most recently, Mrs Pierre spoke at the 2011 Washington conference and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights on statelessness and the right to Nationality.

 

Once again, we would like to express our most sincere and deep condolences on the passing of a great woman, leader and friend. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. You will be missed

 

-The MOSCTHA Family-

2011 Caribbean HIV Conference
Friday, 18 November 2011 16:40

The island of Hispaniola belongs to the region with the second highest adult HIV prevalence in the world.  According to UNAIDS 2010 Global Report, higher prevalence rates are found only in sub-Saharan Africa. This alarming issue has urged MOSCTHA and other HIV stakeholders from the Caribbean to gather and work together at the 2011 Caribbean HIV ConferenceStrengthening Evidence To Achieve Sustainable Action. Experts, public officials and HIV community members from across the region will be participating in this multidisciplinary forum, which seeks to forge a wider, more effective response to the epidemic through collaborative approaches.

2011 HIV Conference

Over the course of November 18–21, in Nassau, The Bahamas, MOSCTHA USA Director, Edison Suero; Health Programs Directors for MOSCTHA Dominican Republic and MOSCTHA Haiti, Tony Contreras and Doctor Orne Sylvain respectively; as well as health promoters: Maria candida Sepulveda, will hear directly from authorities about the medical, social, and socio-political factors influencing the HIV epidemic. They will also share, and learn from around 2,000 attendees with diverse perspectives and backgrounds. The conference is expected to highlight scientific research findings, implementation lessons learned, skills-building tools, and networking opportunities.

 

Dr. Perry Gomez, Director of the National AIDS Programme, and Conference co-chair has said that “there has been a lot of progress in the fight against HIV in the Caribbean over the past 10 years, especially in the area of care and treatment, but other recent health challenges, such as other infectious diseases, flu, dengue fever, and, most recently, cholera—along with natural disasters, like hurricanes and earthquakes—have more immediate debilitating impact. In addition, there is increasing concern about noncommunicable diseases. Attention to all these issues has diminished the intensity with which the region has managed its HIV response.”

 

This year’s theme, Strengthening Evidence To Achieve Sustainable Action, focuses on identifying a viable path that can be maintained in the future regional response to HIV. "In the process of identifying the theme for this Conference, we reviewed the Caribbean's HIV experience over the last three decades or so, and identified two critical and related concepts that we felt should be central to the Conference program -- sustainability and the importance of evidence in guiding the strategies that will attain this goal," said Conference Planning Committee member Roger McLean of the University of the West Indies at St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago. "Sustainability is a key challenge facing the regional HIV response, and, to confront it effectively, we need to carefully evaluate what has and hasn't worked well previously, share good practices and lessons learned, and work together in their application through more integrated approaches."

The event is the third Caribbean HIV conference in the past decade, and this year is sponsored by the Government of The Commonwealth of The Bahamas and the University of Puerto Rico, and conference co-chairs are Professor Daisy M. Gely, Medical Sciences Campus, University of Puerto Rico; Dr. Perry Gomez, Director, Bahamian National AIDS Programme, Princess Margaret Hospital; and Dr. Jack Whitescarver, NIH Associate Director for AIDS Research and Director, Office of AIDS Research, National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

MOSCTHA PRESS RELEASE
Monday, 14 November 2011 11:57

mosctha.org

THE SOCIO CULTURAL MOVEMENT FOR HAITIAN WORKERS (MOSCTHA) Supports CONSTRUCTION OF HEALTH INFRASTRUCTURE IN HATI AFTER THE 2010 HAITIAN EARTHQUAKE WITH THE FUNDRAISING Event MOSCTHA: BREAK THE SILENCE 2011.

On December 3, 2011 MOSCTHA joins efforts with NY local community in building a new health clinic in the town of Petit-Goave, center of the 2010 natural disaster in Haiti.

New York, NY- November 7, 2011: The Socio Cultural Movement for Haitian Workers announced the Fundraising Event MOSCTHA: Break the Silence, to be held on December 3, 2011. The generous support given by the local community will contribute to MOSCTHA planning, construction and sustainability programs for a new clinic in Petit-Goave, Haiti. In the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, this town lacks health care services and a hospital for its population exceeding 13,000 inhabitants. The former Haitian Consul General in Dominican Republic and current Minister of Haitians Living Abroad (MHAVE) is endorsing this initiative and will be the keynote speaker of the winter event. 

 

MOSCTHA initiative of the Petit-Goave new clinic aims at responding to the difficult health conditions in the Latin American country. The Institute for Justice andDemocracy in Haiti (IDJH) recently reported that “Haiti is still wounded” and that “there are more than 320,000 cases of cholera reported since the natural disaster. Previous to the earthquake, not a single case of cholera had been registered.” The World Health Organization expects the number of cholera cases in Haiti to reach 500,000 by the end of 2011. Therefore MOSCTHA joins efforts with the NY community to continue improving the health and lives of the most vulnerable people in Haiti by holding a fundraising event. During these years, the Haitian diaspora and multicultural citizens around the United States have shown a great financial assistance and political commitment to lessen the on-going devastating effects of the tragedy occurred in January 12, 2010. “MOSCTHA: Break the Silence” is an opportunity for different populations, government bodies and civil society organizations across the US to reinforce the importance and urgency of taking Haiti out of the debris left by the catastrophe.

“We dream the day when a family can receive the care they urgently need, we dream birthdays of children growing without the pervasive shadow of disease. But we are not alone, this is the dream of Governments, civil society, citizens in Haiti and worldwide. The Petit-Goave new clinic initiative is a step closer to make this dream a reality”, said MOSCTHA-USA Director, Edison Suero.

MOSCTHA: Break the Silence will feature a silent auction promoting medical equipment and Haitian arts. Supplies and surgical apparatuses such as hospital beds, surgical tables, will be auctioned to MOSCTHA supporters and sent to the clinic. This will enable MOSCTHA supporters to have a direct impact on the functioning of the facility. The medical equipment will be auctioned together with traditional crafted pieces from Haiti. Funds from the art auction will be used to purchase more equipment for the clinic.

“MOSCTHA focuses on promoting education, developing medical infrastructures in underserved area and fostering cooperative communities. The goal is to maximize resources to improve the conditions of as many as we can in Haiti. We seek not just to aid, but empower people and their different social and cultural backgrounds,” said MOSCTHA Founder Dr. Joseph Cherubin.

One of the organization’s achievements is Dominican clinic, Centro de Salud Integral: La Solidaridad, accredited for its outstanding health program. The same program will be established at the new health clinic in Haiti, named Centre de Sante Integral: La Solidarite. With the establishment of this new center, MOSCTHA will continue providing comprehensive health services to vulnerable populations in Haiti, guaranteeing quality services that will improve the quality of life for many.

STOP INDIFFERENCE. SHOW LOVE.
Tuesday, 08 November 2011 13:38

(New York) December 20, 2010

Amidst continuing political unrest, and a crippling cholera outbreak, Haiti has experienced no shortage of challenges in the recent months. With delays in the delivery of pledges and donor aid, mismanaged funds and alleged corruption, the efforts to “build back better” a nation de-habilitated and destroyed by a 7.0 earthquake have been stymied.

Enter a dynamic team of young activists and artists who have come together to work with MOSCTHA, a locally based organization, to address these issues and dig deeper into the real situation in Haiti, one year after the earthquake. Titled “Stop Indifference. Show Love,” this innovative web-based project will take to the camps and streets of Haiti’s most affected areas to bring the survival stories from Haitians to the rest of the world.

“I saw a picture of Edison Suero, the director of MOSCTHA-USA, standing in front of a town that had been reduced to rubble by the earthquake,” says Caitlin Padgett, project co-director. “The picture was titled, 7 months later – nothing has changed. I started thinking about what the situation would be like one year later and about how important it was to hear directly from Haitians about their perspective on the situation, and I contacted MOSCTHA with the idea for this project.”

The project will launch on January 12, 2010, the one-year anniversary of the earthquake. Each day until Valentine’s Day, the web-based project will showcase stories of real people offering real insights and suggested solutions to their current situation. The project brings together a diverse team of young people with a shared desire to get informed, get involved, and ultimately to inspire others to do the same.

“I wanted to help make a difference. Mostly I shoot celebrities and models for magazines, and I want to use my talent to help people in need,” says New York-based celebrity photographer Aliya Naumoff, whose work has been featured in magazines such as Rolling Stone and Nylon. “By volunteering with the ‘Stop Indifference. Show Love.’ project I hope to contribute my 10 years of photography experience to foster awareness, acceptance and ultimately contribute to progress in Haiti.”

Owen Cook, an award winning young filmmaker and animator from the San Francisco Bay Area, who now lives in New York, wanted to contribute both his experience and ability to create great work with limited resources to the project. “I was also really interested in spending time in Haiti and finding stories that aren’t the ones that are most commonly told,” he elaborated.

MOSCTHA was one of the first organizations providing emergency and relief work on the ground after the earthquake hit. Building on their established infrastructure and relationships, with 50 Haitian-Dominican staff members and 125 volunteers working in Haiti, MOSCTHA has been able to reach more than 60 of the hardest hit areas, providing relief to more than 80,000 Haitians.

“I believe in the ‘Stop Indifference. Show Love.’ project for several reasons, however, most important among those is the fact that I have heard of no other project like it,” says Alison Désir, MOSCTHA-USA’s Director of Operations and project co-coordinator. “MOSCTHA will be speaking directly with people in Haiti and documenting their struggles, hopes, and solutions for a better Haiti. Having worked in Haiti for several years prior to the earthquake, MOSCTHA is in the perfect position to do just that.”

Capitalizing on the closeness of Valentine’s Day, the project will feature one story a day from launch until February 14th. “This Valentine’s Day, we want people to take a minute, get informed and get involved, and do something that matters – hence the theme of ‘Stop Indifference. Show Love.’” says Padgett. “Supporters can dedicate e-cards to their loved ones while also spreading awareness and donating to a great organization and cause.”

“I feel extremely fortunate to be joining MOSCTHA as we work to launch our latest effort, ‘Stop Indifference. Show Love.’” says Jane Borock, who joins MOSCTHA’s team as Creative Director. “We've all read the articles by American journalists and have seen CNN reports from the ground, but what we haven't done is simply listen.”

The project launches at www.stopindifferenceshowlove.com on January 12th and will be updated daily. A SHOW LOVE Showcase event is planned in New York City on February 14th to feature a montage of the video documentaries and professional photographs taken during the project.

MOSCTHA Broke the silence and gave a voice to the people of Haiti.
Tuesday, 08 November 2011 13:37

On December 4, 2010, MOSCTHA-USA held its first fundraiser in NYC. MOSCTHA-USA was founded in 2009 in an effort to bring MOSCTHA’s work to the American public and widen the network and support base to impact change in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Over 150 people attended this event, including two special guests of honor: MOSCTHA founder, Dr. Joseph Cherubin, and Haiti’s Minister of Haitians Abroad, Mr. Edwin Paraison. MOSCTHA: BREAK THE SILENCE, as the event was called, served to do just that; break the silence surrounding the real situation on the ground in both Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The fundraiser featured a silent art auction, with works of art from local Haitian artisans, as well as a short program to introduce the work that MOSCTHA has been doing since the earthquake. MOSCTHA and MOSCTHA-USA thank everyone who attended the event and everyone who has donated their time and support to our cause over the past 25 years!

On World AIDS Day MOSCTHA joins the fight
Tuesday, 08 November 2011 13:33

On this World AIDS Day 2010, MOSCTHA joins the fight to raise awareness and help stop the spread of HIV. As part of MOSCTHA’s targeted program to HIV/AIDS, we recently launched a new campaign to create awareness, promote responsible sexual behavior, and change unhealthy attitudes toward HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the communities of Anse a Pitre region in southeastern Haiti.

The communities of Anse-a-Pitre, Banane, Boucan Guillaime and Bois D’homme are particularly difficult to access due to very poor road conditions. These conditions have prevented many organizations from implementing development programs in the region resulting in a lack of information regarding sexual and reproductive health. Field research and survey results indicate a significantly low level of knowledge about STIs and HIV/AIDS in the population, as well as, very little willingness to use effective contraception and disease protection.

Our approach will be to work with community leaders in order to:

-Promote understanding of the risks associated with the knowledge, attitude and behavior towards STIs and HIV / AIDS

-Encourage the use of contraceptives and disease protection methods available

-Select and train community health promoters to undertake community awareness and education activities related to STIs and HIV / AIDS.

Through this new program, MOSCTHA aims to reach out to educate a population of 4,000 - 6,000 people. This effort is in addition to our mobile health care units which on a daily basis visit 33 communities across the Dominican Republic to provide access to contraceptive services, family planning, clinical care, sexual and reproductive health care, STD/HIV prevention and treatment, maternal and child healthcare, and the detection and treatment of cervical and breast cancer.

MOSCTHA on the front-lines fighting the Cholera epidemic in Haiti
Tuesday, 08 November 2011 13:30

After the passing of hurricane Thomas, which left 21 dead and 9 unaccounted for and also destroyed thousands of houses and left more than 5,000 damaged, the country is more at risk then ever for a continued cholera outbreak, according to several specialists who have said that further spread is imminent. According to official information, until today, Wednesday, November 11, cholera has cost the lives of 643 people and hospitalized more than 10,000. Today alone, 46 have died in the department of Aritbonite where the first case of cholera was discovered.

It should be noted that the epidemic is already present in the Oeste department with 75 confirmed cases and another 100 suspected according to officials. Port-au-Prince, home to countless numbers of encampments, each of which houses up to seven people living in extremely inhumane health conditions, is especially at risk. There is a serious lack of potable drinking water and there is no real sanitation system to avoid the further spread of the cholera outbreak. It is entirely possible that the current situation could become worse than what is already occurring in the department of Aritbonite.

In an effort to improve the living conditions of those most vulnerable, MOSCTHA-HAITI, has been on the forefront of the campaign to help curb the epidemic in 10 encampments in the capital, the 3 in Leogane, the 4 in Grand Goaves, the 3 in Petit-Goaves, and Lester in the department of Artibonite. We have been distributing educational materials, such as: flyers, brochures, flipcharts to be used by local health promoters to capacitate the public, and Pur water tablets do purify drinking water. We have been educating illiterate citizens with physical teaching methods based on the information contained in the flyers and brochures. We have also been capacitating local school children so that they can later teach their family members how to prevent cholera.

Moreover, since yesterday classes have been suspended in Gonaïves, which is a province within the department of the Aritbonite, for fear that the children will be infected by the epidemic. It is not known how long classes will be suspended. In Port-au-Prince, there is already a high level of fear on the same issue, and many parents are thinking of not sending their children to school to receive their daily free meal.

In addition to the information that we are delivering to the population in the encampments and local communities, we are also preparing inter-institutional workshops with the hope of capacitating promoters from other institutions that are working in localities where we have no presence. This will allow us to educate more people on how to protect themselves against cholera in order to prevent the disease from spreading.

Medical aid and raising awareness for the prevention of cholera in Haiti
Tuesday, 08 November 2011 13:29

A dangerous and expanding cholera outbreak in the department of Artibonite has turned into an epidemic.  In order to aid those both infected and non-infected, MOSCTHA-HAITI has dispatched a medical team to Artibonite with the hope of curing those infected and preventing further spreading to other parts of the country.  We also made a visit to one of the hospitals (St Nicholas) with the largest number of infected patients, 2,500 of the 4,300 infected according to official reports.  For this reason we have focused our efforts around this hospital by handing out such medicines as: oral rehydration formulas, clean syringes, aspirin, PUR water treatment tablets, and other supplies.

We have also been in contact with doctors at the hospital about how the outbreak began.  According to them, in early October patients began to arrive with symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea and they were not aware that it was due to cholera.  Only on October 12 when a large amount of infected patients sought care did they begin to draw samples to analyze what was occurring.  Once tested, the samples came back positive for cholera and public health officials were quickly alerted.

According to Dr. Colin, the cases did not originate from the city of Saint-Marck, but instead far-off communities where people live close to the river and do not have access to potable water or information on how to use the water that comes from the north river.  Moreover, he informed us that with the help of organizations working to stem the outbreak, they have been able to better control the outbreak in the center.

With the information at hand given to us by Dr. Colin, we went to one of the far-off communities named Lester where people live close to the river and use the water to clean and drink.  Upon our arrival we carried out a workshop on safely treating water with Pur tablets and taught local citizens how to properly wash local fruits and vegetables.  We have been very well received and were asked to return with more Pur tablets.

In our opinion, we believe both far-off communities like Artibonite and main communities like Saint-Marck and Port-au-Prince need a prevention campaign on cholera.  Even though medical officials assure us that none of the cases originated in Saint-Marck, we still believe that the entire population has to be sensitized on the risks and symptoms of the disease since there is still a serious lack of knowledge on the epidemic.

Doc. Joseph Cherubin, founder of MOSCTHA, meets with Edwin Paraison, Minister of M.H.A.V.E. (MinistereDes Haitiens Vivant a L'etranger) for the second time. Until this day they have been helping us get both the container and the two ambulances that are still being held by Haitian customs. We have done almost everything we could with no success. We are hopeful that with an intervention directly from Edwin Paraison, we can get both the container and the ambulances out of customs and can finally ensure these invaluable resources reach the people who need it most.

The Uncertainty Continues
Tuesday, 08 November 2011 13:18

One-and-a-half months later, we still find ourselves fighting with customs agents and other government officials as we try to get our container full of medical supplies to the people of Haiti.  We have been told that we are lacking certain paperwork and the Civil Defense Ministry, who is in charge of clearing any donations coming into Haiti, has informed us that there is a 3-month backlog of containers awaiting approval.  Moreover, the costs associated with holding the container at the port have risen to over $6,000 and they continue to climb each day.  These medical supplies were a donation from Direct Relief and we do not have enough funds to buy new medications in case they expire or we are unable to use them.  Hundreds of thousands of Haitians are needlessly suffering as they succumb to infections and diseases that can be cured/prevented with the very same supplies that are being held in our container.   The Ministry of Finance was supposed to grant us a permit but has since decided to withdraw their offer and refuses to receive any new documents since they are in the process of moving their office.  We have been receiving help from the Minisetere des Hatiens Vivant a L´etrange M.H.A.V.E. (Ministry of Ex-Patriated Haitians) but as of right now we are running out of options and our backs are against the wall.  We have been told that some of the blame for this delay has been placed on corrupt activities that are taking place at the border of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.  We fully understand that Haitian officials want to curb this activity, yet at the same time we feel that it is unfair for us to be penalized on the basis of other people´s illegal actions.  MOSCTHA has years of experience when it comes to supplying direct aid to Haiti and we have always followed all international laws/ regulations.  Furthermore, while we lose both funds and person-time in combating this issue, the Haitian people are paying a far higher price; their lives.
