Challenge

After being slammed by four back-to-back storms, women and families are desperate for fresh water to drink and something to eat. Many have had nothing for days, as villages are submerged and hundreds have died. The situation is only worsened by a lack of government infrastructure. And the dangers do not disappear when the storms leave: hundreds of thousands of people are still left homeless and without access to basic necessities.

Solution

Working together, we will deliver rice, plastic sheeting, water jugs, water tablets to prevent cholera outbreaks, broad-spectrum antibiotics, and other items desperately needed for survival.

Long-Term Impact

Post-disaster relief rarely addresses the unique needs faced by women and children. These organizations will be in Haiti long after the disaster disappears from headlines, ensuring lasting relief that makes a real difference in the lives of many.
