Haiti unveils plan to fight extreme poverty

SANTO DOMINGO, Dec 18 (Bernama) -- The Haitian government will implement a plan to fight extreme anti-poverty that will benefit 50,000 households in 50 districts in capital Port-au-Prince, Xinhua news agency reported.

Marie-Carmelle Rose-Anne Auguste, Minister of Human Rights and Fight Against Extreme Poverty, said the programme launched by government departments and agencies would initially be applied over a six-month period through social welfare offices.

"We want the people to not only overcome extreme poverty, but be inspired to take part in the fight against it. Citizens should not be mere observers but participants in these actions," the minister said.
