EARTHQUAKE RELIEF FOR HAITI
A deadly earthquake has once again ravaged the streets of Haiti, causing the death of over 2,200 people, and leaving over 12,000 injured. Thousands of homes and public buildings have been destroyed, including schools and hospitals.
This 7.2 earthquake has hit the nation while its people were already facing multiple crises, including the COVID-19 pandemic and escalating violence resulting also in the internal displacement of thousands of people. Recovery efforts are underway, but providing aid in hard-to-reach areas after the initial earthquake and possible aftershocks remains very critical and difficult. Many displaced Haitians, including populations affected by the earthquake, are also at high risk due to the ongoing tropical storm season, which is likely to cause flash flooding and mudslides.
The International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) is on the ground, supporting national authorities, to provide essential relief to thousands of displaced and injured residents.
But we can’t do this alone.
Help us help more.
