Haitians are facing an ongoing humanitarian crisis. Last year, a particularly concerning and reinforcing set of circumstances, including skyrocketing fuel prices, catastrophic levels of hunger, the return of cholera, and violence, erupted across the country. 

Your swift support of the Haiti Crisis Relief Fund has been critical in meeting the needs of communities, including people who are particularly vulnerable to the consequences of the current crisis. 

Thanks to your donation, three high-impact nonprofit organizations are using their expertise to quickly serve Haitian children and families in need. 

Here is a short description of some of the critical work you’ve supported: 

  • Health Equity International (HEI) provides health services to Haitians through their hospitals and clinics. This includes prenatal screenings for thousands of women, and malnutrition programs. HEI is investing in health services to treat and prevent the spread of the recent cholera outbreak.
  • Fondation Tous Ensemble (FONTEN) is working with community members who experience disability—a group that is often overlooked during times of crisis. Despite upticks in violence in 2022, FONTEN returned to work in its rehabilitation center, caring for patients. FONTEN is also preparing a campaign against cholera, focused on people with disabilities, to improve their access to safe water and sanitation and prevention of the deadly disease. 
  • Sonje Ayiti Organization is addressing immediate transportation challenges and providing ongoing programs, including a potable water campaign to help families prevent various water-related diseases. The organization is also organizing mental health projects to address the psychological impacts of the crisis on children and their families, and craft, cooking, and education projects for children.

Your support of GlobalGiving’s Haiti Crisis Relief Fund is powering community-led responses and delivering life-saving aid to Haitians. The need remains enormous for impacted communities across the country. Despite the circumstances threatening lives and livelihoods, nonprofit leaders are responding with commitment and leadership. As our partners’ incredible work continues, we will share another update about how your donation is making a difference.

With gratitude, 

Kyra + the GlobalGiving Team

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

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.
