Thank you for helping the people of Haiti
Together we raised more than $5.5 million to provide life-saving emergency assistance to people who need it desperately.
On August 14, an earthquake in southwestern Haiti brought death and destruction to communities already struggling with insecurity and hunger. Homes, schools and hospitals were destroyed, and families were left without food, water and shelter.
Two days later, a tropical storm pummelled the region, causing flooding and landslides, and worsening the humanitarian disaster.
Canadians immediately rallied to help through the Humanitarian Coalition, an alliance of 12 of Canada’s leading international humanitarian agencies.
Individuals, organizations and businesses gave generously. Major media networks supported the emergency appeal with free advertising space. The Canadian government matched donations up to a total of $2 million.
Thanks to your generosity, we are working with our Haitian partners to care for the injured and provide temporary shelter for the homeless. We are delivering emergency food, water, and personal hygiene supplies.
We are helping children and families deal with their trauma. Together we are making life better for people impacted by this disaster.
For your compassion and generosity, we say THANK YOU!
