Number of food insecure Haitians grows by one million


Number of food insecure Haitians grows by one million

Port-au-Prince, Aug 30 (Prensa Latina) The number of food insecure Haitians grew by one million in recent months and the problem now affects some 5,6 million people, the UN humanitarian coordinator, Ulrika Richardson, said.

She stated they are working to respond to immediate humanitarian emergencies that affect the lives of Haitians and at the same time, establish a link between humanitarian response, human rights protection, sustainable development and peacekeeping.

According to Richardson, there is no reason for the Caribbean country to suffer food insecurity when it was once self-sufficient in rice.

In this regard, she indicated that it is necessary to find ways for the private sector to be an ally in the search for sustainable solutions.

She also admitted that the low levels of funding for the UN appeal to assist Haiti’s humanitarian crisis is in line with the complicated global situation from a geopolitical and economic point of view.

This month the UN announced that it allocated $5 million to assist people affected by violence from armed groups, which will allow the world body’s agencies to provide food, clean water, health care, mental health and educational support to more than 100,000 people in total.
