Return to Humanitarian Work

On January 12th a 7.0 earthquake hit Haiti's capital, Port-Au-Prince and caused massive devastation to the city. It is estimated that the quake destroyed more than 4,000 buildings in the capital and caused 250,000 fatalities. Lack of food, clean water, medical care and the spread of disease may push the death toll even higher.

The desperation and enormity of the situation has inspired Americans to respond quickly and generously. In just the first two weeks after the quake, the charities received donations to support their relief efforts in Haiti. Each of these charities has a history of working on massive disasters and/or of working in Haiti.
