Haiti Earthquake Relief

Haiti Earthquake Relief


HHRD Haiti team members are on the ground following a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck west of Port-au-Prince in the early morning hours of August 14, 2021. Over 2000 people have died, and the numbers are projected to increase as search and rescue operations continue. The epicenter was on the same fault line as the tragic 2010 earthquake that claimed the lives of over 220,000 Haitians. There is immediate need for food, shelter, water, and medicine for those who are injured or have lost everything. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates in a timely manner.

Helping Hand USA has launched its “Haiti Earthquake Relief” fund to provide immediate emergency relief to earthquake victims

Situation on the Ground

With the quake being felt as far as Jamaica, the people of Haiti also experienced six aftershocks. Coastal towns were issued a tsunami warning as concerned citizens swarmed the streets. The cities of Les Cayes and Jeremie suffered most of the devastation with extensive infrastructure damage. The people of Haiti have been suffering a slew of natural disasters following the 2010 earthquake which included the cholera outbreak and Hurricane Mathew in 2016. Reports of Haiti lying in the path of tropical storm Grace also poses a tremendous threat to those affected by the most recent earthquake.

From 2010 until 2021 over 50,000 people have benefitted from our services
HHRD immediately launched its Haiti Earthquake Emergency Relief fund to assist with food, water, shelter and medicine in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake. During the Emergency Relief phase in January 2010, HHRD organized 59 rotational clinics treating around 20,000 people with doctors from USA who volunteered their services. Our Global Zabiha, Seasonal, Healthcare, Orphan Support, Water for Life, Skills Development and Shelter Village programs have provided upliftment to the people of Haiti. Furthermore, our Youth for Haiti program has allowed countless college students the opportunity to witness first-hand the humanitarian efforts of HHRD.
