Haiti Humanitarian Assistance in Review, January 2010 – present | ReliefWeb


USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA) not only responds to urgent needs related to humanitarian emergencies, but also funds programs that leave communities stronger and more resilient to future disasters. In Haiti, recurrent floods and landslides associated with the rainy and hurricane seasons, and unpredictable events—such as the January 2010 earthquake and the cholera outbreak that began in October 2010—require USAID/OFDA to focus both on providing immediate response to affected populations and on supporting disaster risk reduction (DRR) programs that promote local and national selfsufficiency in disaster preparedness and management. Since the earthquake, USAID/OFDA has provided more than $450 million to assist affected populations and build resilience. via | ReliefWeb
