WFP in partnership with Medicins du Monde, will distribute Plumpy Doz in Cite Soleil until the end of December and carry out malnutrition screenings and sensitization campaigns.
WFP continues supporting partners with fuel. Given increased requests from partners, fuel stocks are dwindling, and WFP is exploring ways to restock.
Digicel, the largest telecommunications service provider in Haiti, agreed with WFP to distribute SIM cards and digital wallets to beneficiaries in the Grand’Anse department. To create a sustainable safety net in Grand’Anse, WFP and the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labour are jointly implementing the Adaptive Social Protection for Increased Resilience Project.
WFP continues supporting asset creation and livelihoods activities, aiming to empower marginalized and vulnerable population groups to invest in their own livelihoods and communities. On 26 October, WFP reached 1,785 beneficiaries from the most vulnerable communities in the municipality of Maniche (South Department) with USD 250,000.
In October, United Nations Humanitarian Air Services (UNHAS) performed 133 flights and carried 648 passengers and 21,354 kgs of cargo for partners. Most of the cargo transported was in support to the cholera response. UNHAS will have a new asset arriving in mid-November and a cargo line between Haiti and the Dominican Republic for the cholera response.
