Haiti Earthquake: One Week Later, Aid Agencies Facing Challenges
Date:1/19/2010

ch travel by road to Port-au-Prince. So far, Oxfam has distributed water to about 19 sites using water bladders – flexible tanks, filled by water trucks, that can hold up to 10,000 liters of fresh water for local people.

The fuel situation countrywide is becoming more and more critical, which has led to fuel restrictions. Unfortunately, Oxfam had to suspend water distribution operations for hours on Monday due to a lack of fuel, but operations began again on Tuesday to three sites – two in Petionville and one in Carrefour (the worst hit area in the city).

Ten tons of new stock was flown from the United Kingdom to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic on Saturday and has now arrived in Port-au-Prince. Thirty tons of stock will depart from the UK today and will be followed by a further flight, carrying 50 tons of Oxfam aid on Friday.  

"Every day, the recovery needs become even more urgent. We are working to overcome obstacles and challenges in order to deliver aid where it is needed most. There is obviously much more work to be done to recover from this disaster. Oxfam is committed to being in Haiti to help recover now and rebuild for the long haul," said Michael Delaney, director of humanitarian response at Oxfam America.
