Our Continued Response to the Major Earthquake in Southern Haiti

 

On behalf of all of us at Hope for Haiti, we want to extend our heartfelt thanks for stepping up during this year of great need. With your help, we’ve navigated many challenges, including the devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck our impact area in southern Haiti in August. Our team and partners have put your support into action to provide critical humanitarian relief and recovery for 750,000 children, parents and grandparents in Haiti, as they recover from the earthquake, continued political unrest, food insecurity, and the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We have published our updated short- and long-term response plan for this disaster, which can be downloaded from the link here. The document also includes a summary of our efforts. 

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 continued work. 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.
