Haiti - Humanitarian : Aid of $56.5M from the United States
On Tuesday, January 24, 2023, Isobel Coleman, Deputy Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), announced that the United States, through USAID, will provide $56.5 million to the people of Haiti in response to the humanitarian crisis and the cholera epidemic in the country https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-38688-haiti-cholera-daily-bulletin-102.html

Since mid-September, deteriorating security conditions, which include gang violence and attacks on civilians, have prevented people from accessing essentials such as food, fuel, drinking water and other basic supplies.

This funding will help partners meet urgent humanitarian needs of more than 868,800 people across Haiti by distributing medical supplies and medicines, improving access to safe water, and bolstering health facility operations, including cholera treatment centers – critical to slowing the spread of the dangerous disease. The new assistance will also provide urgent food assistance, as 4.7 million people face a severe food crisis, and will support gender-based violence prevention and response services for the most vulnerable. Since USAID deployed a Disaster Assistance Response Team to Haiti in mid-October, it has supported the provision of life-saving food assistance to 144,500 people and transported more than 300 metric tons of health and hygiene supplies into the country for partners combating cholera.
