Hurricane Sandy Relief in Haiti

Summary

Even though the heart of Hurricane Sandy skirted the island, it rained for four days straight in Haiti. Over 20 inches of rainfall deluged the Southern countryside and the damage has been immense. Initial reports speculate that over 90% of farmers in the region lost their crops and livestock. Homes were destroyed, roads washed out and the threat of a spike in cholera and waterborne diseases remain all too real.

Challenge

Hurricane Sandy brought days of continuous rain in Haiti which wiped out crops and livestock and destroyed homes. For rural communities throughout the Southern countryside who depend on agriculture for subsistence these losses are devastating. Haiti is now facing a severe food crisis.

Solution

Your support will provide Haitian farmers and project partners throughout the region with the emergency assistance they need. This will range from providing the funding necessary to purchase life essentials like food and water. While long-term recovery efforts will provide farmers with the seeds, tools and fertilizers needed to replant crops, community credit funds will be replenished, and livestock replaced - among other things. All of which will help Haitians get back on their feet.

Long-Term Impact

Major disasters like this require a great deal of support, both immediately and in the long-term. Lambi Fund is working hand-in-hand with local grassroots organizations to ensure that immediate needs are being met and that the resources, seeds, tools and supplies necessary for long-term recovery are being prioritized and distributed appropriately.
