2021 Haiti Earthquake
Haiti has been facing for decades recurring crises linked to socio-political and health shocks but also natural disasters and an economic crisis. These repetitive crises, including the COVID-19 crisis between 2020 and 2021, have gradually deteriorated the living conditions of the populations. On August 14, 2021, an earthquake destroyed the living conditions and means of subsistence of the populations of the departments of the South, Grand'Anse and Nippes affecting more than 800,000 people and creating a need for shelters and non-food items.
Despite the underfunding of the Shelter/NFI/CCCM sector (16.1% of US$ 30 million required), partners are working hard to reach the most vunerables affected populations. As of 31 December 2021, 92,685 households have been reached with shelter and NFI items. However, buildings damages assessments are ongoing and the coordination is working on advocacy and funding request to allow reconstruction and recovery phase.
