The GlobalGiving Relief Fund is working with 18 partner organizations to support comprehensive emergency relief and recovery efforts for victims and survivors of the devastating January earthquake.
The earthquake was the biggest to hit Haiti in over 250 years. Widespread damage and collapsed buildings are widespread. Casualties and death toll are not yet known, but are expected to be high given the quake's proximity to the capital and flimsy construction of buildings. This Fund will provide emergency relief to victims and survivors.
Through GlobalGiving's partners on the ground, provide victims of the earthquake with critical necessities including water, food, shelter, and medical care. More details will be provided as they are available.
Assist residents of the Western Hemisphere's poorest country as they struggle to recover from this devastating natural disaster.
The damage is significant. Lots of walls down. There are people who have been killed by falling debris...Clearly, the situation there, the damage there, is significant. - P.J. Crowley, Spokeperson, U.S. Department of State
