How your donation will help people in Haiti

Aid is vital, and time is of the essence. Our partners at Haiti Red Cross and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) are responding in the affected areas.

People have lost their homes, their livelihoods and many have lost friends and family.

Heavy rains from Tropical Storm Grace have led to additional landslides and flooding, further impacting rescue operations and efforts to reach more rural areas.

Teams are on the ground providing urgent support to the vast numbers of families that need first aid, shelter, emergency healthcare and hygiene kits.

If you can support our appeal, please do.

Your donation will help the Red Cross movement continue to scale up the response to reach as many people as possible.
