The humanitarian crisis in Haiti worries Plan International
The security situation and the humanitarian crisis in Haiti call for the attention of the non-governmental organization Plan International. Its interim national director, Daphne de Bordes, said on Thursday, “Humanitarian needs have never been so acute since the devastating earthquake of 2010.”
“Due to the crisis, the dangers facing children at the moment, especially girls, are unimaginable and are getting worse every day”, underlines Daphné de Bordes while adding that “the lack of access to food nutrients creates a risk of stunting, which affects children’s development and limits their ability to learn”.
Concerned “by the devastating impact of food shortages”, the NGO Plan International calls on the international community to urgently increase funding to deal with the escalation of the humanitarian crisis in Haiti, where nearly 90% of the population lives. below the poverty line and a third in extreme poverty.
