Violence and insecurity in Haiti continue to disrupt aid

The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says violence and insecurity in Haiti continue to disrupt aid operations with the World Health Organization also warning that less than half of health facilities in the capital are functioning at their normal capacity.

The Deputy Spokesperson for the United Nations Secretary-General, Farhan Haq, said the humanitarian community continues to strongly appeal to all parties to urgently allow unhindered, safe access to people in need.

He said the World Food Programme is able to provide 17,500 hot meals to displaced people, while the United Nations Children's Fund and its partners continue to provide psychosocial support to people impacted by the recent events.
