The UN has allocated US$8 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund to provide essential health care, clean water, emergency shelter and sanitation for all affected people.
Today relief convoys reached affected communities in Les Cayes, Jérémie and Nippes.
We will continue to scale up our response to the hardest-hit areas even as Tropical Storm Grace approaches Haiti with its threat of heavy rainfall and flash floods.
As assessments reveal the level of suffering, the scale of humanitarian need in Haiti continues to grow. I call on all Member States to mobilize efforts to support Haitiin averting a humanitarian disaster.
I have a message to the people of Haiti: you are not alone. We will stand by your side and support you every step of the way out of this crisis.
