How you can help Haiti

On 14th August 2021, Haiti was hit by a 7.2-magnitude earthquake. Then, just two days later, Tropical Depression Grace brought very heavy rains, flooding the same affected region and blocking access roads, compounding the disaster. The death toll from the disaster is in the thousands, with tens of thousands left injured, and half a million children affected, according to UNICEF.

“We are preparing for a public health disaster,” says Nadesha Mijoba of the Haitian Health Foundation, speaking to the BBC. There are fears of a cholera outbreak, and a dangerous lack of clean drinking water and access to food.

Crossroads is in discussions with our existing partners in Haiti about their most urgent needs, and how we can help. You can give funds now to help with the urgent needs of those suffering, or read on for other options:
