UN SAYS HAITIAN CHILDREN AT MERCY OF ARMED GANGS AS SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED

HAITIAN CHILDREN


July 6, 2022 | By Colin O. Jarrett |

The rising gang crime in Port-au-Prince is limiting access to education and is preventing thousands of Haitian children from going to school.

A statement on Sunday from the United Nations, UN, said since 2020, gang-related violence in the French-speaking country has led to school closures and children have become easy prey for gang recruitment.

According to government figures this year, the gang war has intensified and since April 24, half a million children have lost access to education in the capital where some 1,700 schools are closed.
