On Saturday, August 14th, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck Haiti about 80 miles from the capital Port-au-Prince. It collapsed buildings and houses and destroyed access roads. Survivors have fled their homes in fear they may collapse. Reports show nearly 1,900 casualties and thousands injured while rescue efforts continue. Many more are missing.
Tropical Storm Grace crossed through the country on Monday, August 16, adding a downpour of rain and wind to the region making it more difficult for aid to be delivered. Our hearts break for the people in Haiti affected by this earthquake.
World Vision is responding — providing life-saving aid to the most vulnerable children and families. We’re distributing 6,000 food kits and providing clean water, shelter, hygiene goods, and food.
Please give now to help people impacted by this and other disasters around the world.
We also invite you to please join us in prayer. Pray for:
- Comfort for families shocked by loss of loved ones
- Safety for those responding in search and rescue efforts
- Hope for families hurting in a season of unrest and uncertainty
Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The gift options shown reflect World Vision projects and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance within that gift category where it is needed most. When you give any animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide watering sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials as needed.
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.
