More than 60% of Haiti's capital is under the control of gangs. Growing violence between armed groups has led to a blockade of a critical oil terminal and kept residents from accessing food aid, markets, and workplaces. The explosion of gang violence in Port-au-Prince is also putting women and children at grave risk. The number of cases of sexual violence increases daily as the crisis in Haiti worsens. A cholera outbreak is now adding to the challenges people are facing across the country.
All donations to this fund will support emergency relief and response efforts in Haiti, distributing food, clean water, medicine, and other essential supplies to people in need. As immediate needs are met, the fund will transition to support long-term response and recovery efforts led by local organizations in Haiti. These efforts will be led by GlobalGiving's network of long-standing vetted partners in the region.
How Your Donation Will Be Used
