Emergency Hurricane Response in Haiti



CHF International is preparing for the aftermath of Hurricane Tomas, which made landfall in Haiti yesterday afternoon.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

As Tropical Storm Tomas batters Haiti, more than 1 million Haitians have nowhere to go.

How will this project solve this problem?

CHF International's community organizers, already mobilized for earthquake recovery activities, have been deployed to help communities prepare for the hurricane and stand ready to jump into additional response activities as needed.

Potential Long Term Impact

CHF International has responded to multiple hurricanes in Haiti, most notably after the three-week period in 2008 when two hurricanes and a tropical storm battered the island. We specialize in creating long-term recovery post-disaster.
