Challenge

This double-emergency has caused over 2,100 deaths, affecting a total of 1.2 million people. After already being displaced from their homes by the earthquake, heavy rain & flooding from Tropical Storm Grace left many people staying in emergency camps yet again looking for somewhere safe to shelter. The people of Haiti are still recovering from the previous earthquake in 2010, when IsraAID first arrived in the country, and have since dealt with 2016's Hurricane Matthew, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Solution

IsraAID has sent an emergency response and assessment team to support the affected population immediately. Urgent support will include distributions of non-food items (NFIs) to ensure that the most vulnerable have access to masks, soap, safe water filters, blankets, diapers, and feminine hygiene products. The IsraAID team includes Israeli emergency coordinators & Haitian former team-members from IsraAID's previous programming, who will be joined by international WASH and Protection experts.

Long-Term Impact

IsraAID's emergency response missions partner with local communities to re-build their lives, their communities and their futures, together. For as long as it takes. We focus on community resilience, building on community strengths in order to reduce the risk of future disasters.
