UNICEF is calling for urgent action to bring life-saving help to youngsters in Haiti suffering from four successive hurricanes since August, where an estimated 300,000 children are in need of aid, according to the Government. “Relief operations are moving towards the post-disaster recovery activities, but pressing humanitarian needs are yet to be met,” UNICEF said. “Entire parts of the country remain inaccessible by road due to landslides and collapsed bridges,” it added, noting that the dispatch of humanitarian supplies relies on costly sea and air transportation.
