OCHA - Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
In Haiti OCHA supports the humanitarian coordinator by brining together numerous entities of the United Nations and the humanitarian community for the response required to the humanitarian needs of the country. OCHA shares information and ideas with the other UN agencies, MINUSTAH, partners in the international community and amongst the Haitian civilian organisations, through written situational reports and regular humanitarian forums.
WFP - United Nations World Food ProgrammeThe WFP is the first food aid agency in Haiti. It supplies aid to 850,000 people, 10% of the total population, targeting children under five years of age suffering malnutrition, pregnant women, anaemic nursing mothers, and people living with HIV/AIDS or undergoing treatment for tuberculosis. The WFP is also an education point throughout school canteens reaching 300,000 children. Because of its long-standing presence in Haiti and its expertise in the field of emergency relief, the WFP also plays an important role in the follow-up on food security, contingency planning and emergency preparations.
