We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges.
The projects listed below are led by vetted GlobalGiving partners responding to this disaster. You can donate directly to a specific project or to GlobalGiving’s Haiti Crisis Relief Fund and we'll allocate it to where it's needed most. GlobalGiving will post reports about how your donation has been put to use.
Sonje-Ayiti's work continues amidst chaos, violence, Cholera, lockdowns, roadblocks, lack of food, water, medicine and power. Case managers support 100 community members in a program to alleviate extreme poverty. Food is safely distributed or stipends given to the families of many of the 296 students now unable to have a daily meal to buy seeds for fast-growing crops. Treatment and monitoring are provided to 52 severely malnourished children, and mental health community support for depression.
We have a critically urgent situation developing as 7 orphans in 2 of our HRI supported orphanages in Haiti have contracted CHOLERA, a preventable albeit very deadly disease. With 122 children in one of the orphanages alone, this situation is devastating. We urgently need to hire an additional few nurses to provide immediate prevention programs and services not only to this orphanage, but for more than 400 children in 13 HRI supported orphanages for a minimum of three months.
UNICEF estimates 4 million children are in need of urgent support in Haiti, as they face the compounding crises of gang violence and civil unrest, internal displacement, malnutrition and food insecurity, and the resurgence of cholera. UNICEF and partners will work to ensure access to basic goods and continuity of services including essential vaccinations, screening and treatment for malnutrition, protection from violence, continued learning opportunities and access to safe water and hygiene.
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.
