More than 80% of Haiti's capital is under the control of gangs. Violence between armed groups has kept residents from safely accessing affordable food, medical care, markets, and workplaces. The explosion of gang violence in Port-au-Prince is also putting men, women, and children at grave risk of sexual violence and kidnapping. Haiti remains prone to deadly natural hazards such as hurricanes, flooding, and earthquakes. A cholera outbreak is compounding the challenges people are facing.
All donations to this fund will support emergency relief and response efforts in Haiti, distributing food, clean water, medicine, and other essential supplies and services to people in need, including survivors of sexual-based violence, people with disabilities, and people struggling with livelihoods. As immediate needs are met, the fund will transition to support long-term response and recovery efforts led by local organizations in Haiti.
How Your Donation Will Be Used
