Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund 2021

What's Happening and How to Help

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 Earthquake Relief Fund 2021 and we'll allocate it to where it's needed most. GlobalGiving will post reports about how your donation has been put to use.

Haiti earthquake response: Rehab & Prosthetics
On August 14, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti causing major damages in Les Cayes. As of August 20, the Haitian Civil Protection reports over 2,189 deaths and 12,268 injured. This devastation, which left 75,000 families without healthcare access, was aggravated by the rains brought by Tropical Storm Grace. Our goal is to provide primary care to the largest number of people needing rehabilitation and prosthetics. We will prioritize people with disabilities and delivery of life-saving supplies
Haiti Earthquake Relief
On Saturday, August 14, 2021, a 7.2 earthquake rocked Haiti, devastating cities, destroying homes and infrastructure, and burying people in the rubble of collapsed buildings. This earthquake was stronger than the 2010 earthquake, which resulted in more than 200,000 casualties. ActionAid has been working in Haiti since 1997, and is responding immediately with emergency support, while also planning for a longer-term response to support those impacted.
2021 Haiti Earthquake Relief
Over 11 years since a magnitude 7.0 earthquake decimated Port-Au-Prince, another 7.2 magnitude earthquake has hit just 72 miles south of the country's capital. At a time when Haiti is facing crises at all fronts - a wave of COVID-19 with lack of access to vaccines, political turmoil, heightened food insecurity, and hurricane season just beginning - this could not come at a worse time. PIH has been a trusted figure in the community from 1986 through today and moving forward.

August 14th, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Haiti ended the lives of nearly 1,300 people with hundreds more still missing. More than 14,000 homes were destroyed and nearly as many severely damaged from the quake in the provinces of Cayes, Jeremie and Nippe in Haiti's southwest, leaving some 30,000 families homeless. Peace Winds is on the ground leveraging 12 of our disaster resilient community centers in the SUD as a a launching point for providing basic necessities to those most impacted.

Our goal: to meet emergency needs in the 13 Grand'Anse communes: Water supplies, medical supplies, food, temporary housing/tents. Our priorities: remote villages that don't get aid and more vulnerable populations: pregnant women, children, elderly, disabled. Hoping to serve 15,000 to 20,000 people.
Southern Haiti Earthquake Relief
Health Equity International/St. Boniface Hospital (HEI/SBH) is leading disaster relief efforts in the aftermath of the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that devastated southern Haiti in August 2021.

Your support will ensure we have the resources we need to provide 24/7 urgent care and manage the relief effort throughout the region.

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.
