A 7.2-magnitude earthquake rocked Haiti on August 14, resulting in more than 2,200 deaths and more than 12,700 injuries*. Hundreds of people are still missing.
The quake damaged at least 137,000 homes, as well as churches, bridges, piers, and other infrastructure.
Our Haitian teams are working closely with local authorities and partners to identify the most pressing needs. Additional Humanity & Inclusion emergency teams are activated for reinforcement.
Humanity & Inclusion's interventions include:
- Rehabilitation services and distribution of mobility aids for people with injuries, and people with disabilities
- Psychosocial and mental health support
- Logistics support to transport critical aid (HI already had a fleet of 10 boats serving the hardest-hit region.)
- Water, sanitation and hygiene services
- Basic needs items, such as food, shelter, and cash transfers
Humanity & Inclusion teams have been working in Haiti since 2008. In the immediate aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, staff rushed to provide emergency rehabilitation, mobility aids and essential supplies — while ensuring an inclusive humanitarian response. Since then, Humanity & Inclusion has continued to work alongside impacted communities through inclusive livelihood projects, rehabilitation and disaster preparedness planning.
