Protecting vulnerable Haitians in camps

IOM Haiti has received US$ 2.088 million in new funding from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) to contribute to the protection of the most vulnerable people displaced by the earthquake. An estimated 2,000 individuals including survivors and victims of sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) will receive assistance, either directly or through referral to project partners.

The project will prioritize camps under threat of eviction, with high incidence of crime, and SGBV. The funding will also help IOM to provide training and capacity building to the Ministry of Women’s Conditions as well as to a safe house for victims of SGBV, which IOM inaugurated with SIDA funding in 2012.
