HAITI - Besides maintenance of law and order by providing security to Haitians, Rwanda National Police peacekeepers serving under the United Nations Stabilisation Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), have similarly been involved in post conflict reconstruction.

As part of the initiative, Rwandan police officers deployed in the Haitian town of Jeremie initiated a community work exercise akin to the Umuganda.

This exercise enthralled Haitians who turned up in big numbers to participate alongside the Rwandans in cleaning up their city.
