Resource Situation

Over the last two decades, Haiti has been affected by a series of political crises and devastating natural disasters. Due to its geographical location, the country is subject to severe tropical storms from June through November as well as recurring natural hazards. This protracted relief and recovery operation is therefore designed to support Government efforts to respond to the needs of at-risk and affected populations and facilitate their recovery. Its focus will be on saving lives, rebuilding livelihoods and enhancing resilience to shocks.

Nutritional assistance provided to people still struggling to rebuild their lives three years after the earthquake helps mothers raise healthy children.

PORT-AU-PRINCE --Three years after the earthquake, there are fewer tents, fewer people at the site of the old military airport in Port-au-Prince. Many have found a roof to put over their heads, but thousands are still living between abandoned old planes and helicopters in what used to be one of Port-au-Prince’s biggest camps.

Two years after the earthquake, many Haitian schools are serving their children with food grown locally. Knowing they have a buyer, farmers are motivated to produce more food. Knowing they'll get good food, kids are keen to go to school - where they get the nutrition they need, plus an education. It's the virtuous circle at the heart of the strategy by the government and WFP to make Haitians more food secure.

Deux ans après le séisme, beaucoup d’écoles haïtiennes servent des repas scolaires préparés avec des aliments produit localement en Haïti. Sachant qu’ils ont un acheteur, les agriculteurs sont motivés à cultiver plus tandis que les enfants, de leur côté, sont motivés à aller à l’école où ils reçoivent la nutrition dont ils ont besoin, et une éducation. C’est un cercle vertueux qui se trouve au cœur de la stratégie du gouvernement et du PAM destinée à améliorer la sécurité alimentaire des haïtiens.

Suite au tremblement de terre de janvier 2010 en Haïti, l’aide humanitaire a afflué massivement vers le pays dévasté. Dans ce contexte, le programme de cantines scolaires du Programme Alimentaire Mondial des Nations Unies (PAM) a joué un rôle-clé en tant que filet de protection sociale pour de nombreux enfants et leur famille. Deux ans après le séisme, la fonction des cantines scolaires a évolué, mais ces dernières restent d’une importance cruciale pour le redressement du pays.
