…Of the 806,000 affected people who are at the “extreme level” of food insecurity, 426,000 people (or 53 per cent) have so far received food assistance.
…Continued security incidents targeting convoys of humanitarian supplies hinder the much needed delivery of assistance.
…During the reporting period, heavy rains in the departments of Grand’Anse, Nord-Est, and Nord led to the death of 10 people (Three women, four men, and three children). Three others are wounded and one is missing.
…With crop loss reaching a staggering 80 to 100 per cent in parts of the predominantly rural areas, people’s food insecurity risks worsening in the coming months if farming activities are not urgently restored by mid-November.
