In the four weeks since Hurricane Matthew devastated Haiti, All Hands Volunteers has cleared rubble and debris from 6 schools in Port Salut, helping 1400 students get back to school. Unfortunately, due to a recent deterioration in public safety and general security, which is likely to be exacerbated by the upcoming elections, we have made the decision to wrap-up our response effort in Haiti on November 10th. Our CEO stated, “While the need is great in Haiti, the safety of our volunteers also weighs heavily on our shoulders.” As we recognize and empathize with the plight of the Haitian people, we will continue to watch the situation carefully and evaluate opportunities to help with the continuing recovery effort as the situation stabilizes.
This program was All Hands’ third disaster response in Haiti. Following the 2010 earthquake, our volunteer teams worked in Leogane, Haiti, clearing rubble, building schools and installing water filtration units for two years.
We want to thank you for your support and hope that you will continue to follow our programs across the world as we strive to make a difference in the lives of those affected by disaster.
