     Roland Despeines looks for shelter inside a mountain cave when heavy rains fall in southwestern Haiti.
     Despeines and many other Haitians have been taking shelter from storms in the cave since October 4. On that day, Hurricane Matthew destroyed their homes and changed their lives.

     The workers were searching for land to plant food crops, the aid group said. It called the situation a humanitarian crisis. The group said the cave dwellers included 84 women and 62 children.
     "Whenever the rain is about to fall, to stay here," Roland Despeines said. A VOA reporter visited the cave in late March and saw kerosene lamps and sheets made from tree leaves.
     Jovenel Moïse is Haiti's new president. He and Prime Minister Jack Guy Lafontant also visited the caves at the end of March. They have promised to provide food and shelter.
     The United Nations has reported that at least 70 percent of crops were destroyed in one area – the department of Grand'Anse.
     " they are hungry," Despeines said. " to the area, the people run after it," hoping for food, he added. "If a car brings a bag of rice, we cook it right away,;
     A young woman named Bernie Josee also spoke about the problem of hunger. "Sometimes, food," she said. "But this week, we have nothing to eat."
      plants, The Miami Herald recently reported.
     Government workers and aid groups have provided food such as rice and beans to the Haitians. A low-cost government-operated restaurant is planned. And, Moïse has ordered plans to build new homes.
     The United States Agency for International Development provided emergency supplies such as plastic coverings after Hurricane Matthew hit. Also, to pay workers for home repairs.
     After the hurricane, the U.N. Development Program asked for $138 million in aid for Haiti. The agency has made two-thirds of its financial goal.
