Haiti Hurricane Matthew Relief

On October 6, Hurricane Matthew hit the news. 

Unfortunately, Haiti who is still recovering from the catastrophic 2010 earthquake was hit the hardest.

The storm killed nearly 900 people. Thousands were displaced.

More than 300,000 people are in shelters across the country, the United Nations said.

Mourad Wahba, the UN secretary-general's deputy special representative for Haiti, described Matthew as the "largest humanitarian event" since the earthquake.

The devastation was especially brutal in southern Haiti, where winds of 125 mph (200 kph) destroyed homes, flooded villages and cut off the island from the rest of the country.

In coordination with our GAiN Germany office, we're also providing aid to those affected.

We're focusing on both providing and distributing emergency food parcels (containing rice, oil, fish, spices and drinking water) to the community surrounding the Ca-Ira Orphanage. Ca-Ira, which is located in Leogane, is the children's village that we've helped rebuild since the 2010 earthquake. 

Each food parcel is $50 each. 

Would you like to give toward our Emergency Relief Fund?
