Haiti - Humanitarian : Situation report #18 (April 16, 2024)
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in Haiti in collaboration with partners published a report on April 16, 2024 on the humanitarian situation in Haiti.

Key facts and figures :
Supply difficulties and transport costs remain significant challenges in providing humanitarian aid

More than 89,000 people displaced in 87 sites in Port-au-Prince

More than 5.2 million liters of drinking water have been distributed to displaced people in Port-au-Prince since March 1

38 Metric tons:
Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (WHO/PAHO) medical supplies transported from Panama stockpiles

250,000 students on average receive school meals from WFP every day

Summary :
Attacks on police forces and kidnappings continue to be reported, as well as gunfire in the Carrefour area of Port-au-Prince international airport, which has remained closed since March 4th. The Presidential Palace was also the subject of several attempted attacks which were repelled each time by the police.

The number of displaced people in Haiti remains at 362,500 people as of April 9, including 89,000 in 87 sites in the Metropolitan Area of Port-au-Prince. Of these, more than 36,000 are housed in 22 sites managed by the Western Health Directorate, with the support of PAHO/WHO. For its part, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) continues its work to assist migrants, particularly in Cap Haïtien and near border areas, notably Ounaminthe and Belladère.

With the rainy season in the country, the risk of flooding is high and poses an additional risk for displaced people and in the most deprived areas. Following flooding reported in the commune of Cité Soleil, the World Food Program (WFP) is assessing and will respond with dry products over the coming weeks.

The political situation remains tense after the publication of the Order on the creation of the Presidential Transitional Council on April 12. The nine political and civil society structures which had appointed representatives to this council denounced the published text, highlighting what they describe as major changes made by the Council of Ministers in place https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-42104-haiti-flash-the-modified-decree-creating-the-presidential-council-published-official.html which would distort the consensus obtained between stakeholders since March 11.
