The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is mobilizing to meet the demands of the Caribbean countries on the path of Matthew hurricane, which hit hard Haiti. "Our priority is to support the governments’ interventions to save lives and meet the food needs of the most vulnerable and food insecure people affected," declared Miguel Barreto, WFP Regional Director for Latin America and the Caribbean. "WFP is mobilizing its emergency staff and resources to deploy in the wake of Hurricane Matthew."

Haiti, is the most food insecure of the countries in Matthew’s path, WFP has enough emergency food pre-positioned to feed up to 300,000 people for a month if needed.

Stockpiled at key locations across Haiti, these supplies can reach remote areas swiftly, even if roads are washed out or blocked. In addition, high-energy biscuits will be flown from Dubai to Miami for deployment in the wake of Hurricane Matthew according to the greatest needs.
