Aftermath of Matthew
Hurricane Matthew was the most powerful hurricane to strike Haiti in over 50 years and although the storm is behind us, its aftermath lives on.
In Haiti, an estimated 25 percent of the country has been affected by Hurricane Matthew. More than 500 people were killed and around 175,000 people were left displaced. The health, education and protection needs were massive, with an estimated 1.4 million people requiring urgent assistance. We are especially concerned for vulnerable children, including up to 150,000 children out of school.
