The United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, will soon arrive in Haiti today for a short visit, to personally assess the devastation left behind by Hurricane Matthew and to bring urgent attention to a still critical situation in Haiti, as a cholera epidemic is slowly but surely emerging amid the destruction and the UN is struggling to raise the necessary funds.

A couple days after the storm in Haiti, the United Nations quickly launched an appeal for $120 million to help assist the poor country during its worst humanitarian crisis since a devastating earthquake in 2010. So far, only $6.1 million has been raised.

Ban Ki-moon will conduct an aerial survey of the damage and will make a visit to Les Cayes, one of the town most ravaged by high winds and torrential rains from the category 4 hurricane. 

Nearly 1,000 people are confirmed dead, another 350.000 displaced and 1.4 million in urgent food insecurities as a results of the catastrophe.
