Helping Hand for Relief and Development’s (HHRD) Emergency Response Team is in Haiti, on the ground now. Medical Teams are being prepped to bring Medical Assitance in the most devastated areas.

How You Can Help:

HHRD will be making Emergency Food Distributions:
Emergency Food Package: $50
(Bottled Water, Rice, Beans, Cooking Oil,

Current Situation:

Damage from Hurricane Matthew is visible from space according to NASA. The category 4 storm, which devastated Haiti early this month, has affected 1.4 million people and claimed the lives of over 1,000. With the power still out, limited food and water, and destroyed infrastructure relief workers are finding it extremely difficult to reach remote locations.

Besides food and water there is urgent need for clothing and shoes to protect Haitians from debris. With 90% of Haiti south destroyed people have become desperate. HHRD's Emergency Relief Team has been in the region immediately following the hurricane and has been distributed over 300 Food Packages in Les Cayes, Jeremie, Manish Village and Mairagone.

Areas Most Affected:

Miragoâne (where HHRD has built 102 shelters after the devastating earthquake of 2010), Les Anglais, Port Salut and Les Cayes.

HHRD has launched it's "Haiti Hurricane Relief Fund" and all funds will provide Emergency Relief for food, shelter, water and medicine to the victims of Hurricane Matthew.

HHRD in Haiti Since 2010

The country of Haiti is still recovering from the devastating earthquake in 2010. The 7.0 magnitude earthquake killed over 230,000, injured over 300,000 and displaced 1.5 million people.
