Hurricane Matthew 2016

Hurricane Matthew made landfall in southwestern Haiti early on Tuesday 4 October, centred some 250 miles west of the capital Port-au-Prince, causing major floods and forcing thousands to flee. Two weeks after the event, official figure reported that 2.1 million people were affected, with wide-ranging needs across all humanitarian clusters.
CBM Emergency Response Unit (ERU) is developing a disability-inclusive response with the CBM Country Office that will address immediate and long-term needs, including building community resilience to disaster.
