Your gift will help us meet the immediate, urgent needs of earthquake survivors, and also enable World Vision to help the people of Haiti rebuild and recover in the weeks and months to come.
The worst natural disaster to strike the Western Hemisphere in the past century, estimates of the number of casualties are as high as 200,000, more than one million people were left homeless, and hundreds of thousands were injured. World Vision, which has more than three decades of experience in Haiti, was able to begin distributing relief supplies within hours of the quake.
Your gift now will help distribute life-saving food, medicines, and family survival kits — including clean water, blankets, cooking supplies, and tents — to children and families devastated by the earthquake in Haiti.
Our efforts to help Haiti recover from this disaster are just beginning. In the months and years ahead, we’ll work alongside thousands of children and families to restore hope to their communities.
Twice daily, World Vision trucks deliver treated water to families in the Parc Acra camp, where it is used for drinking, bathing, and cooking.“If World Vision didn’t bring it, there would be no water" - mother, beneficiary
