Hurricane Matthew was the most severe storm to hit Haiti since 1966, dumping massive amounts of rain accompanied by fierce winds. The storm caused not only acute illness and injury, but also flash floods, mudslides, and loss of infrastructure, as well as exacerbated the threat of cholera. Partners In Health and our Haitian sister organization, Zanmi Lasante, continue to be on the ground responding with health care and social support for those in need now and for the long-term.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, that left ravaged gardens, destroyed houses, Lambi Fund with 20 years of experience working with farmers in rural Haiti, will develop an immediate response to meet basic needs of farming organizations at the onset; and repair/restore food production gardens, improve top soil to maintain food production. This will be done within already established partnership that are actively contracted to develop specific projects within their respective communities.
Since the October 2016 Hurricane Matthew, Peace Winds has providing relief in the area of Saint Jean du Sud. The communities longed for safe, disaster resistant centers where they could meet, could have after school activities, could hold livelihood trainings, and during disasters, could find refuge. Since March 2017, we have trained carpenters and masons in disaster resistant construction and built six centers. We now are building four centers in Arniquet, and also conducting WASH workshops.
Hurricane Matthew could have devastating impacts in Haiti, as the country has not experienced a storm of this magnitude since 1954. CARE is coordinating with the government to help people evacuate from areas at extreme risk. We are providing meals and supplies such as water bladders to provide clean drinking water, hygiene kits, tarps and blankets to people in shelters. CARE is appealing for immediate funds to ramp-up our emergency response and support the longer-term recovery of Haiti.
Hurricane Matthew, a Category 4 storm, hit the south of Haiti on October 3rd through 4th, wreaking havoc in the region. Many people lost their roofs, rendering them homeless. The micro loan program will offer loans to women who were hit by Hurricane Matthew. Each will be able to borrow up to $100 for repairs, livestock purchases, etc. If 100 women borrow $100, this program will cost $10,000. This money, once paid back, will remain in a revolving fund that can be lent out again.
Hurricane Matthew, a Category 4 storm and the largest in the region since 1966, struck the nation of Haiti on October 4, causing immense damage. This project will help the Haitian people rebuild their homes and lives while increasing their resilience to future disasters.
This Project will assist the people of Fond des Blancs,Haiti to secure roofs to their homes. We propose to accomplish this by conducting an existing building and construction practice survey and based upon this survey, devise a simple method and supply the necessary hardware to train the community on how to secure 50 roofs.

Nearly two years after the 2015 earthquakes hundreds of families are living in dilapidated temporary shelters. Thousands of children are learning in temporary spaces, many of which are open to the harsh Himalayan elements. They do not need to.

A major humanitarian crisis and child protection failure are unfolding across Europe. In 2015, more than one million refugees and displaced people arrived in Europe - most fleeing conflict, persecution or poverty. While aid agencies and grassroots groups have stepped in to provide crucial short-term aid, the absence of human rights centred political action means that a long-term resolution to the situation seems a distant possibility. We aim to change that.

The project will provide clothing and a supply of sanitary pads to restore dignity and well-being.

We believe people affected by aid should have a say in how it happens. Too often development and humanitarian organizations concentrate on reporting to donors rather than really engaging with, and listening to, the people they are supposed to serve. We help these organizations harness feedback from the people they seek to help, and use this data to improve their performance leading to better outcomes for all.

There is a refugee crisis at Europe's door. The reason we talk about a "crisis" is not because of the number of refugees but because of the incapacity of Europe to deal with the problem in an organized and predictable way. There is a need for all European countries to cooperate with solidarity in order to confront this problem with cooperation and goodwill. The Greek islands receive 2.500 refugees every day.
