An appeal for US$ 400 million is aiming to strengthen Haiti's resilience, according to the UN Mission in the Caribbean island, MINUSTAH.

The funds will be put towards fighting food insecurity and combatting cholera as well as other urgent needs.

They will also help to build resilience to natural disasters.

Haiti is still recovering from an earthquake that hit five years ago, killing 200,000 people.

Eleuterio Guevane spoke with Peter de Clercq, the Humanitarian Coordinator in Haiti and began by asking him about the UN's strategy to support the country.
