In August 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. We have been working in Haiti since 1997, and is responding immediately with emergency support, while also planning for a longer-term response. A gift will enable us to support relief efforts like this around the world.

Hundreds have been killed because of the earthquake; thousands more have lost their homes and livelihoods. This is on top of the ongoing political instability, food insecurity, the hurricane season, and ongoing impacts from Covid-19. In emergencies like these, children and single mothers are among the most vulnerable populations. The devastating fallout from this earthquake could push many more families into poverty and hunger.


With the generous support of people like you, ActionAid is responding immediately. Building on decades of local partnerships, our response will provide emergency shelter, food, and critical items such as blankets, kitchen supplies, and hygiene kits for women and girls. We will also provide 'safe spaces' where women can access legal support, counselling, and skills training, as well as counseling for children and families who have been impacted by this disaster.

Long-Term Impact

ActionAid's response is community-driven, women-led, and rights-based, which means your donation today invests in change that lasts. ActionAid's work in Haiti over the past two and a half decades has focused on strengthening the resilience and capacity of people to respond to emergencies and improve their long-term quality of life. Your gift helps us support people impacted by this crisis and other emergencies like it around the world.
