iciHaiti - Port-au-Prince : Alarming humanitarian situation
This report is produced by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA - Haiti) in collaboration with humanitarian partners. It covers the humanitarian situation in Port-au-Prince from May 3rd to 9, 2024.

Context :
The security situation in Port-au-Prince remains marked by the persistence of acts of violence perpetrated by armed groups active in a large part of the territory of the Haitian capital. This situation continues to have humanitarian consequences on the populations of the affected neighborhoods. National and international humanitarian actors continue to work, in partnership and coordination, to provide assistance based on available resources and means of intervention.

Since April 25, numerous attacks have taken place in the commune of Damascus and have resulted in the displacement of more than 5,100 people in the neighborhoods of City Number 2 and Solino, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The Acting Humanitarian Coordinator condemned these attacks and called for respect for basic humanitarian standards in a statement issued on May 6. Humanitarian partners continue to provide assistance with food, shelter and non-food items as well as protection to affected people in the commune of Delmas.

Highlights :
The Acting Humanitarian Coordinator condemned the acts of violence targeting the population in the neighborhoods of Port-au-Prince and reiterated his call for respect for basic humanitarian standards.

The international NGO Save the Children has sounded the alarm about the presence of children in numerous armed groups. Food vulnerability is cited among the factors that explain this situation.

More than 8.4 million liters of drinking water were distributed to nearly 70,000 internally displaced people by humanitarian partners intervening in the water, hygiene and sanitation sector in 22 sites in Port-au- Prince, since March 1st, 2024.

More than 181,000 people in Port-au-Prince have received assistance in school feeding, social protection, emergency interventions and resilience activities from the World Food Program (WFP) in Port-au-Prince, since March 1st, 2024.
