Haiti's government activates MIC in reaction to Hurricane Tomas

The government of Haiti has requested EU assistance in response to Hurricane Tomas, which is currently passing through the Caribbean region. The request was received on November 05. As a preparatory measure, the Haitian authorities have asked for tents, tarpaulins, mosquito nets, hygiene and water purification kits, and other small items.The European Commission's Monitoring and Information Centre (MIC) has transmitted this request to the 31 countries that participate in the EU's Civil Protection Mechanism. The MIC will collect the assistance offers and coordinate their deployment as needed.The EU stands ready to facilitate the deployment of in-kind assistance that may be available from Member States, following the rapid assessment of needs, in order to assist the Haitian population to face this new trial.Meanwhile, The European Commission's Directorate General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (DG ECHO) stands ready to respond to humanitarian needs through financial assistance to the Commission's partners on the ground.
