Haiti Earthquake Relief

Respond to Haiti Earthquake through UMCOR
The news coming out of Haiti is devastating, and aid is direly needed.
On August 14, 2021, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck southwestern Haiti, approximately 80 miles west of the capital Port-au-Prince, killing and injuring thousands of people. The earthquake also damaged or destroyed hundreds of houses and other buildings, including critical public buildings such as hospitals and churches, across the Grand Anse, Nippes, and Sud departments.
U.S. Response
USAID immediately deployed a Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) to lead the U.S.
government’s response efforts. The team of elite USAID disaster experts is on the ground conducting damage assessments and coordinating with government officials to provide life-saving humanitarian assistance to communities affected by the earthquake.
UMCOR Haiti Earthquake Support
