WHAT'S HAPPENING IN HAITI?
On 14th August 2021, 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.
Now, Haiti is trapped in a hunger and security crisis with about 4.5 million people experiencing acute food insecurity.
Across the country, hunger is becoming a norm for children. Many of them don’t know whether they will get food tomorrow.
In the past year, while many people have been able to rebuild their houses, for many others the situation remains challenging.
Our teams have been on the ground providing life-saving assistance to thousands of people whose lives crumbled on when the earthquake hit Haiti.
We are continuing to support healthcare and nutrition services as well as providing cash transfers to families to meet their urgent needs such as to access food, healthcare, or to pay school fees.
Increasing numbers of hunger cases is becoming a great challenge for children and their families and more help is needed.
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.
