Cuba: Hurricane Ian

Since the 22nd of September, hurricane Ian has been impacting Cuba, particularly the provinces of Pinar del Rios, Artemisa, Mayabeque, the Special Municipality Isla de la Juventud, and La Habana. The hurricane has been leveled as a Category 3 with sustained winds of 205km/h and has caused landfalls, floods, damages to the infrastructure, housing, electricity and telecommunications services, crops, and the disruption of the provision of critical public and social services.

The ACT Forum Cuba, through its members CIC and CCRD, is foreseeing providing humanitarian support to 400 households and 2,000 affected people in sectors such as food security, WASH, Health, NFI, protection, and Emergency Preparedness. To that end, the ACT Forum Cuba will be applying for an RRF of 150.000 USD.
