The situation in Haiti is urgent. After the devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck western Haiti on Saturday 14th August, children living on the streets in Les Cayes in western Haiti are in dire need of food, water and shelter.
“I see children crying on the street, people asking us for food, but we are low on food ourselves as well. The organisations that are here are doing what they can, but we need more supplies. Food, clean water and shelter are needed most, and we need them fast." - Field Manager Carl-Henry Petit-Frère of Save the Children

At the weekend, Haiti was struck by a major 7.2 magnitude earthquake, which killed more than 1,400 people and destroyed or damaged more than 80,000 houses.
Even before the earthquake, more than 1.1 million people in Haiti were estimated to be one step away from famine, including hundreds of thousands of children. In the area of Les Cayes, which was hit the hardest, an estimated 160,000 people were already struggling to get enough food every day, with almost 40,000 people living on the verge of famine.
Since the earthquake, our teams have been on the ground distributing tarpaulins, blankets, jerry cans and baby kits. We’re scaling up our response as much as possible, and aim to provide cash support, child protection, education spaces, healthcare, and psychological support to help families begin to rebuild their lives.
Please give to our Children's Emergency Fund today. This special reserve of money allows us to respond quickly and help children survive emergencies like the Haiti Earthquake.
