PORT-AU-PRINCE – Six months after an earthquake struck Haiti’s capital of Port-au-Prince killing more than 220,000 people and injuring more than 300,000 others, an outpouring of global support has enabled international aid organization Oxfam and other agencies to get aid through to the Haitian people and begin the rebuilding process.
Oxfam staffers and partner groups have been working non-stop to provide water, latrines, emergency shelter, and other essentials for earthquake survivors. We have witnessed remarkable progress, but recovery in Haiti remains one of the most complex humanitarian development challenges in recent history.
Oxfam has produced a media brief, which provides a progress report on our response in Haiti over the past six months: how our programs have reached those affected by the earthquake, the type of services and assistance we have provided, the cost of these programs, as well as our plans for the next six months as our recovery work in Haiti continues.
