HHRD Haiti team members were 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. The epicenter was on the same fault line as the tragic 2010 earthquake that claimed the lives of over 220,000 Haitians. There is ongoing need for food, shelter, water, and medicine for those who are injured or have lost everything.
With the quake being felt as far as Jamaica, the people of Haiti experienced six aftershocks. 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 a cholera outbreak and Hurricane Mathew in 2016.
HHRD immediately launched its Haiti Earthquake Emergency Relief fund to assist with food, water, shelter and medicine in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake. 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.
