Emergency – Earthquake in Haiti
Give Life-Saving Aid Needed TODAY
A magnitude 7.2 earthquake rocked southern Haiti on August 14, leaving at least 2,200 people dead and more than 12,000 injured.
Our FH Haiti team was on the scene within 24 hours of the disaster to deliver critical emergency supplies to as many children and families as possible. Now, your urgent help is needed to keep people healthy. Whole families are living outdoors, afraid to sleep in their damaged houses. Others are crowded into small spaces with friends or relatives who took them in. Diseases like COVID-19, cholera, and typhoid loom as threats.
Your response is even more critical now, as FH moves to protect more than 25,000 people from these threats. You’ll help install multiple community water systems that can each provide clean, filtered water to 5,000 people, along with community training to keep the systems working. You’ll also help “the least of these” by distributing baby care kits — t-shirts, sleepers, hooded jackets, blankets and diapers — alongside adult personal care kits with soap, toothbrushes and other hygiene items.
And to keep families warm and dry, you’ll provide cash for home repairs and blankets, tarps, and kitchen kits so that families can set up housekeeping again. Plus, you’ll help farming families replant fields that were devastated by the quake, with distributions of seeds, particularly beans that are an important staple food in Haiti.
This response will take commitment. And we need you alongside us. The effects of the earthquake will last far beyond the day that the media cameras leave. Help FH to remain alongside quake-damaged communities.
Please give generously to help Haiti quake survivors.
