Hurricane Matthew, the strongest hurricane to hit Haiti in almost a decade, caused over 800 deaths, devastated entire areas, and laid waste to crops.
As many as 4 million people in Haiti have been affected by the storm, many of them women and girls, with the number of wounded also on the rise. Women in Haiti already experience discrimination, from high levels of violence to low levels of participation in political and economic decision-making.
UN Women is committed to ensuring that this is not compounded in the aftermath of this tragedy and that women and girls receive the support they deserve. Please help us support UN Women's efforts.
