More than half – 800,000 people – are in dire need of immediate food aid, according to an emergency field assessment. The humanitarian community in Haiti urgently needs $56 million to meet the food assistance needs of people affected by Hurricane Matthew over the next three months. Haiti is the poorest country in the Americas, home to almost 11 million people, many living in fragile housing. This year, the vulnerability of the population is higher, as three years of drought have pushed people further into poverty and hunger. A total of 3.6 million Haitians are food insecure – 1.5 million severely so.    WFP in Action Climate Change Logistics Responding to Emergencies Haiti English Americas Video News Release Climate Change Urban Food Insecurity General Food Distribution Hurricanes Logistics Sun, 23 Oct 2016 22:00:00 +0000 WFP 650553 at https://www.wfp.org WFP Delivering Food Assistance To Survivors Of Hurricane Matthew In Haiti https://www.wfp.org/news/news-release/wfp-delivering-food-assistance-survivors-hurricane-matthew-haiti PORT-AU-PRINCE – The World Food Programme (WFP) is supporting the Government of Haiti in providing emergency food assistance to 750,000 people in regions battered by powerful Hurricane Matthew.

Some 8,500 people were provided with food rations from WFP. In coordination with the Government of Haiti and international agencies, WFP has deployed logistics and assessment teams to bring relief and determine the wider impact on food and nutrition security. Ahead of the hurricane season, WFP had pre-positioned sufficient emergency supplies to feed up to 300,000 people for a month.  WFP in Action Climate Change Logistics Responding to Emergencies Haiti English Americas Video News Release Climate Change Emergencies General Food Distribution Hurricanes Logistics Tue, 11 Oct 2016 12:30:03 +0000 WFP 650453 at https://www.wfp.org WFP Mobilizes To Assist People Affected By Hurricane Matthew https://www.wfp.org/news/news-release/wfp-mobilizes-assist-people-affected-hurricane-matthew PORT AU PRINCE –  The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is mobilizing to respond if requested by Caribbean countries in the path of Hurricane Matthew, as it struck Haiti on Tuesday as a Category 4 hurricane.
