In Haiti MSF Says No Fuel and No Power In Echo of UN Cholera, SG Guterres Silent Censor

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 10 – In Haiti, an earthquake hit and long after, nothing from the UN whose Sec-Gen Guterres was away on an undisclosed vacation.

Now, after Guterres presumptively junketed to Lisbon on his way to raise funds for the Taliban (UN staff tell Inner City Press), this from MSF in Haiti: shortages of fuel, public transportation and drinking water are putting medical facilities and patients at risk, including those operated by Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), the organization said today, calling for fuel deliveries to medical facilities in the city.     While MSF has been continuously reducing its energy consumption through emergency measures, MSF's trauma and burns hospital in Tabarre was forced to reduce medical activities last week, treating only patients with life-threatening conditions. Both the Tabarre hospital and MSF's emergency center in Turgeau will run out of fuel for hospital generators in three weeks unless new supplies are delivered. MSF's emergency center in Cité Soleil will run out in two and a half weeks.     "Medical facilities in Port-au-Prince face the same challenges: no fuel, no electricity, no medical care,' said Jean-Gilbert Ndong, MSF medical coordinator." And nothing the UN, which killed 10,000 Haitian with cholera and didn't pay a penny.

We'll have more on this - Inner City Press' written question on Haiti have yet to be answer by the Mexican Mission to the UN, president of the UNSC for November, following Guterres and his Melissa Fleming refusing to answer the Quinn Emanuel law firm's polite letter seeking access to UNGA for Inner City Press, as many state media and retirees will have.


  Most recently, Guterres' spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Farhan Haq have refused to answer Inner City Press' written questions about new cases of UN sexual abuse in Haiti, here.
