After Hurricane Sandy arrived on the heels of two other extreme weather events, the number of food insecure people in Haiti increased to 1.5 million. WFP is working to address those immediate food needs through food distributions.
Germaine Louis, who is from a village south of Port-Au-Prince, says that with her field having been damaged by Sandy, she does not know how she will make ends meet now. Many others like her who depended on agriculture will be targeted with food assistance to help them recover their livelihoods before another planting season begins in December.
With a strong and capable logistics team, WFP is able to work with government authorities and its partners to provide food assistance to thousands who have lost their homes, crops and livelihoods to Hurrican Sandy.
