Update from Haiti for Giving Tuesday!

Repairing the damaged pipeline
Repairing the damaged pipeline

We have wonderful news!

On Giving Tuesday November 29th – all donations to IsraAID on GlobalGiving will be 50% matched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Do not miss this opportunity!

Please see below a short update from the field:

Hurricane Matthew’s 145-mile-per-hour winds and heavy rain destroyed houses, roads, bridges and other infrastructure in Haiti. Government and UN ofcials estimate that some 350,000 Haitians were deeply affected.

After Hurricane Matthew, most children in the south west region of Nippes were not able to return to school. To help them, IsraAID started a psycho-social program in a public school for students and other displaced children in Petite Riviere. Our Haitian psychologist and social workers are overseeing this program to help these children overcome the trauma caused by the hurricane and get back to learning.

Our activities include a training for the teachers in psychological first aid, communication with children, playful classroom interventions, art and much more. Once school gets back to normal, IsraAID will continue supporting the teachers with training and supervision.

Finally, Hurricane Matthew also left the majority of the region without access to clean water. IsraAID assessed Dupuy Commune’s damaged pipeline, and repaired it together with the Haitian authorities, bringing clear water to nearly 10,000 people.

Dupuy Commune is just one of many communities disrupted by the hurricane - with no water, little infrastructure, and vulnerable families struggling to recover. This #GivingTuesday, we need your help, and are excited to offer you this 50% matching!

Thank you for your support!
