PORT-AU-PRINCE— The Haitian National Police (PNH) will receive 250 motorcycles, 300 radios and 10 drones in the next two months from Canada to bolster the police force's efforts to fight against gang violence, Canadian officials said Tuesday, a day after Haiti begun experiencing new violence that sent groups of residents fleeing various neighborhoods.
Canada’s Ambassador to Haiti, Sébastien Carriere, said via Twitter Tuesday that the assistance is an initial disbursement of $13 million, in US dollars, from a $100 million pledge the Canadian government made in March to support PNH.
Canada is disbursing $13 million worth of equipment out of a $100 million fund to help Haiti fight rampant gang violence and address other concerns.
