Earthquake In Haiti 2021

Update September 30, 2021

We have been overwhelmed by your generous response to the Haiti earthquake that took place on August 14th. God has been blessing the work that is made possible through your donations. Because of HHI's consistent presence in Haiti over the past 11 years, we were able to mobilize our own local employees quickly to coordinate relief efforts.

In a short month and a half, our team in Haiti has built over 48 emergency shelters. Though the shelters were built with the intention of serving as temporary relief, locals have shared their plans to use the structures long term. The shelters are constructed to be both earthquake and hurricane-resilient. Additionally, over 6,200 meals have been distributed to those most in need.

We continue to survey 14 local churches and their members to identify needs, striving to make sure no one is overlooked. The local employees and teams we are partnering with have worked long and hard to serve their community. Rain, mud, and a lack of sleep are not enough to deter this motivated group of local HHI employees. We praise God for their protection as they travel through violent, gang-controlled areas. It is inspiring to watch as Haitians helping Haitians and serving as the core and the backbone of this disaster relief operation.
