Rebuilding and Healing Haiti - 6 years later

More than six years after the catastrophic earthquake shook Haiti, our nonprofit partners are still responding. Partners in Health, Lambi Fund of Haiti, and International Medical Corps continue to provide medical care, training, and rebuilding efforts for locals as the country continues to struggle with cholera outbreaks and climate change on the already devastated country.


International Medical Corps reported that there were 33 cases of cholera in Haiti within just the first two days of 2016. Cholera continues to be an issue, since sanitation in the area is still suffering. Luckily, International Medical Corps has released Mobile Medical Units to treat those with cholera within 24-48 hours. They have also been able to train health workers on how to prevent and treat the disease within their communities. With their continued efforts, International Medical Corps seeks to reduce the number of cholera cases from the 50,000 found last year.


Partners in Health also continues to respond to health needs in Haiti but with a focus on mental health. The trauma experienced following the earthquake and in the wake of continued medical outbreaks has increased the depression and anxiety already found in the communities. PIH has now trained over 60 workers on how to provide support for those with PTSD in part because of support from you.


Since January, Lambi Fund of Haiti has been working with four organizations in the area to prepare 180,000 new plants for planting in an effort to increase the low levels of crop yields that have resulted from both the earthquake and the drought. Increased food security could also reduce the stress on those dealing with depression and those dependent on farming for their livelihood.


These three organizations are able to continue to provide support as a direct result of your continued donations. Please consider donating again to reduce cholera, increase health support, and increase food production for Haitians impacted by this quake.

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
