NEW YORK, NY — A report to the Secretary-General to the United Nations Security Council revealed a coalition of Haiti groups has not found a common vision and its cohesiveness has splintered.

Helen La Lime, head of BINUH, the U.N.’s Integrated Office in Haiti, delivered the report called “The question concerning Haiti” in New York June 16.

“To date, the multiple initiatives and proposals to foster a common vision among national stakeholders as to how Haiti can move forward have yielded few concrete results,” La Lime said. “On the contrary, previously homogeneous coalitions have started to fracture.”
