USAID says will give $32 million to quake-hit Haiti

U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) administrator Samantha Power on Thursday (August 26) announced $32 million in assistance to Haiti.

The Caribbean country is reeling from an earthquake earlier this month that killed more than 2,000 people and destroyed or damaged tens of thousands of homes.

“We know that there will be shelter needs alongside longer-term public health medical needs, water needs and sanitation,” Power told a news conference in Port-au-Prince.
