HAITI EARTHQUAKE APPEAL

Injured and disabled people desperately need your help

On 14th August, Haiti was rocked by a 7.2-magnitude earthquake.

2,207
people killed

12,268
people injured

139,000
homes destroyed

or damaged

650,000
people

are in urgent need of shelter, food, safe water, and hygiene facilities.

Many of the survivors are seriously injured and in need of urgent support. Hospitals are already overwhelmed by demand. The situation is truly desperate.

And, just two days after the earthquake, Tropical Storm Grace lashed Haiti with drenching rains, causing landslides and flash flooding.

More than 800,000 people have been left stranded. Most have limited or no access to shelter, clean water and food.

It is a race against time to reach them.
