Haiti: Hurricane Matthew, Update 4
Created: 14/10/2016 +

Overview

Key updates since 12 October:

  • Trust between people in need and aid workers has been hampered by several security incidents. Blockades and attacks on aid workers are reported in Jérémie, Les Cayes, Carrefour Charles, Chambellon, and Torbeck as people try to access aid. Road access has improved throughout Grand’Anse and Sud.
  • 510 cases of cholera now reported throughout Haiti; 60,000 are in need of emergency health services.
  • The damage to schools and numbers of affected children reported so far refer only to public schools, which comprise only 20% of schools in Haiti, meaning figures are likely much higher.
