Urgent relief need: Haiti hurricane recovery

Haiti – already the poorest country in the western hemisphere – has once again been pummelled, this time by Hurricane Matthew, the strongest storm to cross the Caribbean in years with wind speed of over 230 km per hour and torrential rains. The monster hurricane killed more than 1000 and displaced tens of thousands whose homes were damaged or destroyed. It wiped out infrastructure and crops, and washed away topsoil. The UN estimates that 1.4 million Haitians are in need of humanitarian assistance.

Now, a cholera outbreak – spread through contaminated water – is taking more lives in the devastated southwest part of the country.

To ensure our donations make the best possible impact, ARDFC is partnering with Compassion Canada – a highly reputable Christian organization with a similar philosophy to ours of working in partnership with local churches. Compassion has been working in Haiti for decades, partnering with local churches to sponsor vulnerable children and help lift families out of poverty. In this crisis, Compassion is distributing supplies – such as food, water, clothing and hygiene kits – and helping their church partners, many of which have also suffered terrible damage and loss, extend support and aid to devastated communities.

Please help us help Haiti.
