The situation continues to be difficult in Haiti as recovery begins after Hurricane Matthew. Haiti was already in dire need and at risk for many different diseases like cholera, but the situation has been made all the worse by the devastation left behind by this recent hurricane.
According to the last figures issued by the government, it is estimated that 1,410,907 people are in need of humanitarian assistance, representing 12.9% of the population of the country (10.9M), whilst 2.1 million people have been affected by Hurricane Matthew (OCHA). HOPE worldwide has been on the ground delivering much needed food, water, water purification tablets and other needed materials in Les Cayes – one of the most devastated areas in Haiti.
