Emergency Relief for Survivors of Haiti Hurricane

by World Concern

Summary

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.

Challenge

Hundreds of Haitians lost their lives in the wake of Hurricane Matthew and thousands more are still in desperate need of help. Walta was at home with her children when the hurricane struck her small coastal town. "I don't have anything to give to my children," she explains. Forced to sleep on the street since their home was completely destroyed, Walta and her children need help. Your gift of $48 will provide them with emergency supplies including shelter, mosquito nets and clean water.

Solution

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.
