DUBAI/MEMPHIS: October 14, 2016. The UAE has delivered 90 tonnes of aid to Haiti on a 747-400 freighter owned by the Ruler of Dubai in response to the widespread devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew.

The shipment was organized by the UAE's International Humanitarian City (IHC) and included supplies from the U.N. Humanitarian Response Depot in Dubai on behalf of Save the Children, Handicap International, World Vision International, Catholic Relief Services, USAID and Lutheran World Relief.

According to the U.N., which has launched a US$120 million aid appeal, the Category 4 storm killed 546 people with 128 still missing, injured 438, and affected 2.1 million people throughout the country, with 1.4 million in need of urgent lifesaving assistance.

FedEx Hurricane Mathew Port au PrinceThe aid from Dubai will help 340,000 people and included water purification units, mosquito nets, medical supplies, tents and other support equipment. According to the IHC, because of a growing outbreak of cholera in Haiti, the focus of the aid shipment is to ensure a sufficient supply of quality water.

Meanwhile FedEx has delivered over 30 tons of humanitarian aid to relief workers on behalf of Direct Relief, International Medical Corps and Heart to Heart International, who have medical staff and disaster relief supplies pre-positioned in the region. The two B757 flights into Port-au-Prince carried medication, medical equipment, hygiene kits and tents that can be used as pop-up health facilities.

"FedEx's swift action in the wake of Hurricane Matthew makes it possible for our teams to save lives and alleviate suffering in some of the hardest hit communities in Haiti," said Nancy Aossey, president and CEO of International Medical Corps. "FedEx [is] making it possible for our teams to deliver urgently needed supplies and bring lifesaving medical care to those in need, helping stop the spread of cholera—a disease that has the potential to be far deadlier than the storm itself."

According to the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), more than 40 percent of the 1.4 million Haitians in need are children, while in the affected areas where schools and hospitals have been damaged or destroyed, over 1,850 houses have been flooded.

OCHA said the number of people killed and injured, of the homes affected, schools and hospitals damaged, and the volume of crops lost, is expected to rise as communications are slowly restored throughout the island.

Thomas Tighe, president and CEO of Direct Relief added: "Hurricane Matthew dealt a doubly cruel blow to Haiti, causing tragic loss of life and vastly increased risks and harm while at the same time damaging the health facilities and infrastructure critical to responding."
