7 June 2024 Our humanitarian colleagues continue to sound the alarm on the dire food security in the country.

You heard from Jean-Martin Bauer, the Country Director of the World Food Programme (WFP) in Haiti, who said the country is considered a hunger hotspot, with populations already in acute food insecurity and requiring urgent humanitarian action.

Amid this difficult context, our humanitarian colleagues continue to support the people in the capital and across the region.

From 1 to 6 June, as part of its emergency response, WFP distributed more than 38,000 hot meals to over 8,700 internally displaced persons in eight sites in Port-au-Prince metropolitan zone.

Also, in the past week and across the country, it also distributed cash assistance to some 27,000 people.

It is impossible to overstate the increase in gang activity across Port-au-Prince and beyond, the deterioration of the human rights situation and the deepening of the humanitarian crisis.

Haiti: Humanitarian Needs and Response Plan

Humanitarian needs

The worsening security situation, the near-collapse of basic services, the impact of years of drought and natural disasters will leave 5.5 million Haitians highly vulnerable in 2024. Humanitarians will target 3.6 million people, 12% more than in 2023, with a funding requirement of 674 million dollars, to:

  • 1. Provide a multi-sectoral emergency response to 2.2 million people in areas affected by sudden shocks linked to insecurity, forced population movements, natural disasters and epidemics.
  • 2. Implement activities to strengthen the resilience of 3.6 million people, including actions that promote sustainable solutions and emergency preparedness.

As of 19 April 2024, only 8.1% of the total requirements, i.e. US$ 54,4 million have been financed.
