On Tuesday October 4th, 2016, Hurricane Matthew, the strongest hurricane in almost a decade swept through Haiti with winds of up to 230 km/h causing widespread damage, flooding, and displacement across the island. The hurricane affected 175,000 people gathered in collective centers, and 806,000 people were in dire need of life-saving multi-sectoral assistance. It damaged and destroyed infrastructures and people’s homes and livelihoods, and disrupted basic social services, mainly in rural areas. Before the hurricane, humanitarian needs throughout the country were already quite significant, notably due to the cholera epidemic, the El-Niño-induced drought, the bi-national migration crisis, and the internally displaced persons (IDPs) following the 2010 earthquake. The hurricane added and exacerbated existing needs.

Since Hurricane Matthew hit parts of Haiti in October 2016, the ACT Alliance has assisted more than 500,000 people in 6 different departments in the country. Those affected have been provided with water, sanitation, shelter, livelihood support, DRR training and relief items such as cash, family kits or hygiene sets. Location for the ACT members’ response include : Ouest (Ganthier/Boen), Sud (Torbeck, Chantal, Camp- Perrin), Grand Anse (Jeremie), Nord Ouest, Artibonite (La Gonave), and the Sud-Est department.
