Following the passage of Hurricane Matthew on Haiti, the Haitian Government has appealed for assistance to the international community, more than 300,000 people may need immediate assistance, according to the United Nations.

Haitian authorities have requested in particular assistance of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and their partners and other humanitarian actors.

Our teams already on site preparing in order to assess the situation and consider an emergency response to affected populations, according to the needs," declared Jean-François Michel, head of Handicap International operations for Haiti.

If necessary, the association also plans to provide emergency rehabilitation care and provide psychosocial support to those injured and affected families.
