Hurricane Matthew Relief in Haiti

by St. Boniface Haiti Foundation (SBHF)

Summary

Hurricane Matthew is bearing down on Haiti, and St. Boniface Hospital in Fond-des-Blancs is directly in its path. With top sustained winds of 130 miles per hour and the chances of up to 3 feet of rain, the hurricane presents an unprecedented disaster for southern Haiti. It will erase years worth of recovery after the earthquake, and leave famine and disease in its wake. SBHF is prepared to respond in any way necessary, but we will need your help.

Challenge

The southern peninsula of Haiti is home to nearly 2 million people, many of whom live in extreme poverty. The lack of infrastructure combined with high rates of poverty leave southern Haiti extremely vulnerable to natural disasters like Hurricane Matthew.

Solution

St. Boniface Hospital is the best-equipped hospital on the southern peninsula, and is already mobilizing to respond in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. Any support you can give will help provide urgent medical relief to those affected.

Long-Term Impact

Hurricane Matthew will bring flooding and extreme damage to Haiti's southern peninsula, which will be devastating to the country. These floods will be dangerous in their immediate aftermath, but can also lead to a loss of crops and subsequent famine and malnutrition in the country. The damage will also likely cause harm to many health centers in the country, meaning there will be a huge influx in patients seeking care.
