ITALY'S HEALTH ASSISTANCE TO HAITI UNDER THE EU CIVIL PROTECTION MECHANISM

Following the request of the Haitian Government for an international aid intervention to the local population severely affected by the earthquake of last August 14, the European Civil Protection Mechanism was activated and Italy has arranged for the sending of materials for health assistance.

Thanks to the collaboration with the Ministry of Defense, an Air Force flight took off this morning from Pratica di Mare airport with about 12 tons of aid on board including medicines, tents, medical devices and PPE, donated by the Lombardy, Marche, Friuli regions Venezia Giulia and the Italian Red Cross, together with the commitment of the Rava Foundation, already a partner of the National Civil Protection Service on the occasion of the earthquake that struck the same area in 2010.

The materials will be distributed in different parts of the island, according to the indications provided by the local authorities, in order to make the Italian help more effective and reach the largest number of people.
