Haiti - USA : $15M to fight against food insecurity in Haiti
Since April 30, 2020, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has allocated $15 million to the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) to help Haitian households facing high levels of food insecurity. In anticipation of the hurricane season in Haiti, food aid reserves are available to provide food assistance for one month to approximately 300,000 people in the event of a natural disaster. From March to June 2020, in the departments of Grand'Anse, Nippes, West and Artibonite, WFP completed the distribution of food to approximately 121,610 people. Each household received 50 kg of rice, 12.5 kg of peas and 9.2 pounds of cooking oil for a total of about 2,730 tonnes.

US Ambassador to Haiti Michèle Sison said, "The commitment of USAID and the US government to food security in Haiti continues to help the most vulnerable. USAID, in collaboration with the UN and other partners, not only improves the food security of women and children in Haiti, but also helps women entrepreneurs achieve long-term, sustainable success [...]"

"During COVID-19 we continue to not only improve nutritious food consumption to over 60,000 Haitian households but also strengthen incomes for families like Mrs. Flaure," says USAID Haiti Mission Director, Christopher Cushing.
