Help Children in Haiti

A 7.2 magnitude earthquake has hit Haiti. Felt across the Caribbean,the powerful earthquake struck the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince, with the epicenter detected in the southern part of the country. Serious damage, injuries and casualties are reported in multiple cities.

More than 30,000 homes, hotels and churches have been reduced to rubble. Over 1,200 people have died, and a further 5700 are injured.

“We are deeply saddened by the reports of casualties and heavy damage following the earthquake earlier today in Haiti,” said Bruno Maes, UNICEF Representative in Haiti. “UNICEF is working with government and non-government partners to provide support to affected communities. We stand in solidarity with families and children during this difficult time.”

UNICEF teams are on the ground in the aftermath of the devastating  earthquake in Haiti. Using pre positioned supplies our teams are reaching children but their needs are urgent and critical.

Children were already suffering due to surging COVID-19 cases, severe acute malnutrition and very high rates of chronic poverty. The earthquake will only make the challenges facing children so much worse.

Please donate now, and help the children of Haiti as they face another disaster.
