Haiti - UN : Humanitarian needs for 2024 amount to US$674 million, to help 3.6 million Haitians (Report)
"Living in Haiti today means being forced to make impossible choices to stay alive. Going to school, the hospital or the market, cultivating your field or obtaining drinking water has become an ordeal for millions of Haitians. Crossing the threshold of your house means risking death from bullets, being kidnapped by armed groups or suffering unimaginable violence. Crime now dictates the daily lives of Haitians," declared Jean-Martin Bauer, Director of the World Food Program (WFP in Haiti), Acting Humanitarian Coordinator

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) summarizes the situation "The escalation of violence in Cap-Haitien, Gonaïves, Ouanaminthe, Les Cayes and certain areas of Port-au-Prince continues to disrupt daily activities and hinder humanitarian operations.

In recent days, several businesses remained closed and transport did not operate. Some schools remain closed, affecting more than 130,000 students, who do not benefit from the school feeding program, sometimes the only meal children receive for the day.

The ongoing violence also hampers humanitarian work. In Mariani, south of Port-au-Prince, gang violence has made access to southern Haiti almost impossible."

Jean-Martin Bauer recalls that despite access constraints linked to insecurity and limited financial resources, "the humanitarian community mobilized in a remarkable way in 2023 to provide a response to nearly 2.6 million Haitians who have received at least one form of humanitarian aid."

"In 2023, the humanitarian community mobilized in a remarkable way to provide a response on the scale of the needs [...]" he explains "My priority will be to maintain this trajectory in 2024 so that we come to the aid of 3, 6 million people, a target increasing by 12% compared to the previous year. I will pay particular attention to protection, with an emphasis on prevention and the availability of services, including for women and girls who are victims of or exposed to gender-based violence. This includes access to social services, strengthening the reception and assistance of deported or forcibly displaced people and improving living conditions in displaced sites. In a context marked by a cholera epidemic, access to health and water, hygiene and sanitation services will be of particular importance. The response to the food and nutrition crisis and the prevention of famine are also among the priorities. Finally, displaced out-of-school children from the most vulnerable host communities will have equitable access to safe and protective education. Beyond emergency response, we will implement resilience-building activities, including through actions that promote sustainable solutions and emergency preparedness."

The 2024 Humanitarian Response Plan for Haiti has just been posted online. He is seeking $674 million to help 3.6 million people in Haiti.
