As the UN celebrates its 75th anniversary, a campaign is seeking to round up 100,000 signatures on the UN75 website, to request reparations for at least 10,000 Haitians killed by Cholera. The campaign cites 800,000 Haitians as having been contaminated.
The intergovernmental organization denied its importation of the cholera bacterium by its own peacekeepers for six years, until issuing an apology in 2016. The last reported case of Cholera was reported in January 2019.
Despite all of the conclusive evidence regarding the organization’s role in the deadly outbreak, no legal responsibility has been taken and victims have not received reparations.
The organizations promoting the campaign are listed as follows: PAPDA, POHDH, RNDDH, CE-JILAP, BAI, MOLEGHA, Konbit Fanm Saj, and MODEP.
