Provide emergency relief to children in Haiti

August 25, 2021 | Donor News, GFC & Partner Updates

A major earthquake has killed more than 2,000 people in Haiti and destroyed thousands of homes. Your support now is critical to protect children and youth.

A 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti on August 14, leaving more than 2,200 people dead and more than 12,000 injured. A tropical storm hit the country a few days later, making rescue efforts more difficult.

Children and their families need food, clean water, and shelter, and young people need additional support so they can return to school in September.

GFC’s partners in Haiti – including Fondation Zanmi Timoun, Organisation Haïtienne pour Développement Durable, and SAKALA – are supporting earthquake and storm survivors. They are offering direct emergency relief to families and preparing to help children go back to school. Your donation will help them provide families with food, hygiene kits, psychosocial support, and other assistance.

If you would like to support children and youth in Haiti, please contact Abigail Stallworth at [email protected].
