Emergency Relief for Survivors of Haiti Hurricane

by World Concern


Yet another major disaster has hit vulnerable Haiti. Hurricane Matthew has caused flash flooding, destroyed cropland, and flattened poorly built infrastructure. Lives will be lost, disease will spread, and the aftermath will likely result in a major humanitarian crisis as displaced families struggle to meet their basic needs of food, water, shelter, and income. Your support provides a family with emergency supplies, including clean water, and helps strengthen the relief effort.

Haiti has once again been hit by a major disaster. Hurricane Matthew has lashed the country, with gale force winds and torrential rain destroying homes, cropland, and flimsy infrastructure. Loss of life is expected to be severe as reports come in, making this a mounting humanitarian disaster. Displaced families will need emergency supplies including food, clean water, and shelter to survive the critical weeks ahead.


World Concern is on the ground in Haiti, working with disaster response teams and managing the relief effort in collaboration with other aid and development agencies. Our experience in disaster response, especially in Haiti, has allowed us to build extensive networks and distribution strategies that will allow us to deliver emergency aid to the hardest hit areas quickly, safely, and efficiently. Gifts will also support survivors in the critical months ahead, as they recover, heal, and rebuild.

Long-Term Impact

Gifts will not only meet the immediate survival needs of a family affected by Hurricane Matthew, but it will also enable World Concern to work with the poorest communities to rebuild. Working with global partners, this may include the supply of items such as building materials, clean water, food, economic development, and more. World Concern has operated in Haiti for more than 30 years, weathering multiple disasters, and supporting the community through each one.
