On August 14, a devastating earthquake struck Haiti, leaving more than 650,000 people in need of emergency humanitarian assistance.
800,000 people in the southwest of Haiti remain affected by the earthquake. More than 137,000 homes and 60 health facilities were damaged or destroyed.
As of October 24, International Medical Corps had provided nearly 3,900 medical consultations and reached nearly 3,000 community members with hygiene messaging.
On August 14, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti’s Tiburon Peninsula, causing at least 2,248 deaths and injuring more than 12,760 people. Two months after the earthquake, aid organizations face challenges in providing relief due to an upsurge in gang violence and fuel shortages throughout the country. The earthquake-affected region and the country’s capital, Port-au-Prince, also have faced transportation strikes and road blockades, with frequency and duration increasing in the month of October. Fuel shortages have thwarted ongoing relief efforts by limiting the use of generators, preventing humanitarian convoys, delaying delivery schedules of goods, inhibiting movement of workers and creating increased security risks for all. According to the UN Integrated Office in Haiti, reserves of fuel at hospitals in the capital are running so low that critical care will begin to halt if fuel supplies are not increased by October 26.
