Thousands of people living in camps in Haiti remain at risk from flooding and disease, according to international aid agency Oxfam, despite the Caribbean island appearing to have avoided the worst of tropical storm Isaac.
Oxfam teams in Haiti are working to prepare communities to help avoid damage from Tropical Storm Isaac, which is expected to hit the country today (Friday 24 August), and are also preparing contingency stocks of aid and emergency response teams.
80 per cent of the population affected by Noel has received no aid yet. Around 100 communities remain isolated. Lack of access and reduced local capacity are hindering the arrival of aid for most of the population.
