Bring hope and resources to Haitian families amid multiple crises.
Still recovering from the effects of devastating natural disasters, including major earthquakes in 2010 and 2021 and Hurricane Matthew in 2016, Haiti is now in the midst of multiple emergencies — a deadly cholera outbreak, a growing food crisis, and alarming levels of gang violence.
After a 12-year epidemic ended last year, cholera cases are surging again as a result of limited access to healthcare and fuel shortages that have hampered water treatment efforts. The outbreak that began in the capital of Port-au-Prince has spread quickly, resulting in tens of thousands of hospitalizations and hundreds of confirmed deaths. On top of serious illness, the people of Haiti are among the most affected by the global food crisis: 4.7 million people (nearly half the population) are experiencing acute food insecurity and 1 in 5 children are so malnourished they’re at risk of death. Intensifying these issues is the escalation of gang violence throughout the country, with harrowing accounts of kidnappings, sexual assault, robberies, and assassinations. Since the 2021 killing of the Haitian president, gangs have been gaining ground, threatening agricultural production and even the government itself. The parliament is no longer functioning and the justice system can barely operate under the heightened security risks.
Our hearts break for those in Haiti who are bearing these immense burdens. Thankfully, we serve a God who is able to work miracles — and invites us to help bring them about. Please give today to bring tangible help and hope to people suffering from these compounding crises. World Vision staff are already responding by providing aid to vulnerable children and families, but your help is needed to continue bringing desperately needed resources to a country in chaos.
Will you also join us in prayer? Please ask the Lord to be with those who are sick, those who are hungry, and those who have fallen victim to extreme violence.
Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity by using your donation in the most effective way possible. Giving options represent World Vision projects and suggested donation amounts are based on surveys in the countries where we serve. Your donation will be used to provide assistance where it's needed most with the gift category. For example, when you give an animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide water sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
