    Some 1,4 Million Haitians Require Food Assistance in the Wake of Hurricane Matthew (For the Media)

    Some 1,4 million Haitians require food assistance in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, which wrought widespread devastation on supplies and crops across large swaths of the island nation. 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 Distributing Food in Worst Affected Areas of Haiti (For the Media)

    In its rampage through the Caribbean, Hurricane Matthew claimed lives, and left extensive flooding and mudslides, damage to roads and buildings, and electricity and water shortages in parts of Haiti and Cuba. Despite difficulties in reaching stricken areas due to road damage, initial food distributions started in Haiti this past weekend in the two most affected departments (South and Grande-Anse). 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.
