What is needed?
Shelter is therefore an area of key priority, as those that have been displaced desperately need protection. Along with power and communication, water has also been reported to have been cut off, making this an area of acute need. Damage to the islands infrastructure means that sanitation facilities have been destroyed, posing dangerous risks to hygiene. Supplies are limited, particularly among those who have been displaced. The impact that the presence of these refugees will have on their new host communities and their supplies and infrastructure is yet to be established.
There have been reports from survivors that the island is in chaos, with a severe shortage of food. The locals are frantic, and with the situation deteriorating rapidly, hope is dwindling fast. The victims and survivors of this terrible tragedy are in desperate need of food, water, shelter, and medical assistance. Without these, this disaster is certain to escalate beyond measure.
