Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government announced $16.5 million to help stabilize Haiti at the summit of French-speaking countries in Tunisia.

Trudeau announced $8 million for humanitarian aid, delivered by the United Nations and there is also funding to weed out corruption and prosecute gender-based violence.

Haiti’s government has called for an international military intervention to combat gangs who have strangled access to fuel and critical supplies in the middle of a worsening cholera outbreak.
