€30.5m humanitarian aid to Haiti

Humanitarian funding in value of €30.5 million will be granted to Haiti by the European Commission, to help those still homeless as a result of the earthquake, cholera victims and those badly affected by Hurricane Sandy
A key area of humanitarian work in Haiti is the continuing response to the cholera epidemic and preventing its spread. The passage of tropical storm Isaac and hurricane Sandy across the region last year illustrated the continuing needs of hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people. Many of them are still living in camps but are slowly returning to permanent homes. Access to clean water, primary health care, improving sanitation and promoting hygiene all remain as issues.
Since the earthquake struck in 2010, €213 million in EU humanitarian aid has been mobilised for Haiti.
Haiti is the largest beneficiary of the European Commission's humanitarian aid in Latin America and the Caribbean, with more than €260 million in humanitarian aid since 1995.
