As the cold weather sets in and we begin to spend time with family and friends during this holiday season, we want to take the time out to thank you for your support for those living in Haiti after the earthquake of 2010. Our partner organizations are still committed to rebuilding a stronger Haiti, and it is thanks to you that they can continue to perform their great work!

As the Lambi Fund of Haiti celebrates their 20th year of working closely with organizations in rural Haiti, they continue with their rebuilding efforts in Haiti after the earthquake. The executive director of the Lambi Fund of Haiti, Marie Marthe Saint Cyr, shares her experience and acknowledgement of the incredible work that has been done thus far to rebuild their community. “I walked the streets of Port-Au-Prince and there were many signs indicating a movement towards rebuilding Haiti physically;  especially the addition of 700 kilometers of roads, some paved,  some unpaved, spilling a rising cloud of dust for miles and muds when the rain falls.” They are working hard to continue with long term, stable results in the communities so they can withstand major crises.

Since the earthquake in 2010 and in partnership with the Haitian Ministry of Health, Partners in Health has been able to work diligently towards the construction of University Hospital in Mirebalais. The University Hospital has been able to provide advanced health care while training Haiti’s next generation of health professionals, as well as drive economic growth for the region. The economic activity that the hospital has cultivated has sparked new businesses to not only further develop the economic development in the community, but bolster spirits of the people.

We send our deepest appreciation to you during this holiday season for your continued support for the people of Haiti who continue to rebuild their community after the earthquake.

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.
