On October 4th 2016, the passage of Hurricane Mathieu in Haiti provoked the largest humanitarian crisis since the 2010 earthquake. Along the Hurricane’s path, 90% of the houses have had their rooftops, structures and walls blown away. Approximately 525 000 people, were in need for shelters and Non-Food Items. Field evaluations conducted by NLRC personnel identified additional needs in food security, water and sanitation. The NLRC emergency response directly contributed in tackling the acute risks related to poor access to water and sanitation. According to IOM, one year after the Hurricane, more than 26 000 houses are still in critical conditions.
