HAITI EARTHQUAKE APPEAL
Injured and disabled people desperately need your help
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.

Our team in Haiti is providing desperately-needed emergency care, rehabilitation and psychological support, as well as running an aid distribution network. Additional experts have arrived to support our emergency response.
Our priority actions are:
- Medical support (emergency care, rehabilitation, and psychological support)
- Essential needs provision (food, shelter, sanitation and hygiene)
- Logistics platform for aid storage and distribution
It is vital that we act quickly after such a massive disaster, but we can’t do it without vital emergency funds.

One month after an earthquake wreaked havoc in southwest Haiti, humanitarian needs remain immense. The disaster caused over 2,000 deaths and left 650,000 people in need of vital support.
After being injured when their home collapsed, Stephanie and her aunt Valerie received mobility aids and are learning rehabilitation exercises from Humanity & Inclusion physical therapists.
In the aftermath of the recent earthquake in Haiti, HI is successfully delivering humanitarian aid by sea to support people affected by the disaster.
