21 May 2024 〞 On Haiti, our humanitarian colleagues continue to sound the alarm about the impact of the crisis on education.

Since the beginning of May, armed groups have taken control of several neighbourhoods in the capital, Port-au-Prince, as we have been telling you. That has led to the looting and burning down of schools.

According to our education partners, 30 attacks on schools have been recorded since the start of this year.

Between July of last year and mid-May of this year, violence has forced the closure of nearly 900 schools in Port-au-Prince and in the Artibonite province. This has impacted nearly 200,000 young people who are yearning for an education and 4,000 teachers.

Elsewhere in the country, we and our partners continue to support children. For example, as we mentioned previously, the World Food Programme and its partners continue to operate the school meals programme. They have reached nearly 400,000 schoolchildren since the beginning of the year.

It is impossible to overstate the increase in gang activity across Port-au-Prince and beyond, the deterioration of the human rights situation and the deepening of the humanitarian crisis.

Haiti: Humanitarian Needs and Response Plan

Humanitarian needs

The worsening security situation, the near-collapse of basic services, the impact of years of drought and natural disasters will leave 5.5 million Haitians highly vulnerable in 2024. Humanitarians will target 3.6 million people, 12% more than in 2023, with a funding requirement of 674 million dollars, to:

  • 1. Provide a multi-sectoral emergency response to 2.2 million people in areas affected by sudden shocks linked to insecurity, forced population movements, natural disasters and epidemics.
  • 2. Implement activities to strengthen the resilience of 3.6 million people, including actions that promote sustainable solutions and emergency preparedness.

As of 19 April 2024, only 8.1% of the total requirements, i.e. US$ 54,4 million have been financed.
