Responding to the Major Earthquake in Southern Haiti

We have published our initial short- and long-term response plan for this disaster, which can be downloaded from the link here. Our Infirmary St. Etienne is open seven days a week to provide healthcare and other essential services like clean water to members of the community. View our one-month summary of response & recovery efforts here.

Given our over three decades of experience in emergency preparedness and response in southern Haiti, we are well-positioned and uniquely qualified to use our best available resources to help make a difference. Our team lives and works in the communities we serve, and is made up of Haitian doctors, nurses, program managers, and others dedicated to improving their own country. 

Please consider a donation to our earthquake relief efforts today. We are a four-star rated organization by Charity Navigator, a leading independent rating agency for nonprofit financial transparency and accountability. Charity Navigator also named us one of the Top 10 Humanitarian Relief Organizations, and published our article on the Top 5 Things to Consider When Supporting Disaster Relief Efforts.

Our statement regarding the situation in Del Rio, TX: Our organization is deeply concerned by the reality of the situation in Del Rio, Texas and the disturbing images we’ve seen circulating. While Hope for Haiti is not focused on immigration issues, we commend the work of organizations like the Haitian Bridge Alliance and World Central Kitchen that are on the ground in Texas and actively working to improve the humanitarian conditions for the people there living through such acute adversity.  Hope for Haiti’s program focus continues to be on the needs of families living in Haiti and partnering with communities to rebuild, recover, and rise from the devastating earthquake last month.
