Thank you—we can’t say it enough! Because of your incredible generosity, communities struggling after the August 2021 earthquake in Haiti have received holistic support from vetted, mostly Haitian-led, nonprofit organizations in the GlobalGiving network.

Since our last update to you, the GlobalGiving team made a final set of four grants from this fund to our partners on the front lines of the earthquake recovery process. Here is a snapshot of the important work your donation has supported through these final grants:

  • Fondation Tous Ensemble, based in Les Cayes, had its prosthetic clinic severely damaged by the earthquake last year. Since that time, it has been operating mobile clinics to visit more than 60 locations in and around its community, many in rural and remote areas, to reach earthquake-affected community members. Thanks to your donation, the organization will be able to re-establish a more secure location for its clinic and expand its vital prosthetic work for those with disabilities, especially those injured by the earthquake.

  • Economic Stimulus Projects for Work and Action (ESPWA), founded by Haitians following the January 2010 earthquake, is continuing to drive a community-led recovery effort that brings together grassroots groups across Haiti.Because of your support, the organization has accomplished incredible things hand in hand with local communities, like recently installing a water cistern in Pestel and developing a detailed plan to install two additional cisterns in the months ahead to serve more than 25,000 residents in the community after access to clean water was disrupted by the earthquake.

  • Lambi Fund of Haiti, based in and working in Haiti since 1994, remains committed to supporting its grassroots partners working across all earthquake-affected communities, especially in rural areas. The organization has carefully awarded funds to its partners to get critical support into the hands of farmers, women-led groups, and families that had their homes destroyed. Similar to ESPWA, the organization is also focused on providing access to clean drinking water to communities after many water systems were damaged by the earthquake.

  • MADRE has partnered with local women’s and LGBTQ organizations in Haiti since 1994, supporting community-led development and advocacy efforts to address the range of socio-economic, humanitarian, and political challenges the country faces, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic and worsening climate disasters. After the earthquake last year, the organization has continued to drive flexible funding to women-led community groups in Haiti with a focus on getting supplies to at-risk community members, such as youth and people with disabilities. For example, MADRE has enabled these groups to prevent and address gender-based violence, which increases amid disaster.

This fund is no longer accepting donations, and this will be the last fund report of this kind from our team. Thank you again for advancing community-led disaster recovery.
