Haiti - Humanitarian : Australia is helping Haiti
Following the passage of Hurricane Matthew on Haiti, Australia announces $2.5 million to the international effort to help Haiti.

The Australian Government will provide $1.5 million to UNICEF to improve access to clean water and sanitation to help combat the cholera epidemic and threat of other water-borne diseases. This follows an international appeal by the United Nations to intensify efforts to reduce the transmission of cholera and provide support to Haitians most affected by the disease.

Australia will also contribute $1 million to the International Organization for Migration to provide shelter to people whose homes have been damaged or destroyed.

In addition to this support, Australia’s High Commission in Port of Spain is distributing hygiene kits and clean water to 800 affected families through the local arm of Plan International.

RedR Australia will provide additional Australian humanitarian experts on the ground in Haiti to support the international effort.
