Challenge

The priority at the moment is water. As part of our initial response, CARE plans to distribute 600,000 water purification tablets and 60,000 meals. Our focus will be on the most vulnerable- women and girls. From CARE's experience in other emergencies, we know mothers with infants and pregnant women will need special supplies and health care, so this will also be a focus of our immediate response.

Solution

Water is the priority at the moment. However, as in all disasters, the immediate needs will also involve shelter, food and medical aid, as well as sanitation and other waste management solutions.

Long-Term Impact

Assist residents of the Western Hemisphere's poorest country as they struggle to recover from this devastating natural disaster.
