Haiti 20.08.2021

Recently, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck the Central American country Haiti. In the earthquake that occurred at a depth of about 10 km, almost 2.000 people lost their lives, 6.900 were injured and 30.000 people were left homeless. Search and rescue efforts still continue until now. On top of the earthquake, Haiti was also hit by a tropical storm, leading to floods that devastate the Haitians even more. Earthquake victims whose homes were destroyed cannot even find tents to live in; they are struggling to survive in makeshift shelters. In the wake of these successive disasters, Haiti made an appeal for international aid.

IHH Disaster Management teams responded to this appeal and traveled to the country to immediately began aid efforts there. Initially, our teams distributed 550 food and hygiene packets to affected families in the city of Les Cayes that was worst hit by the earthquake. Our teams also distributed drinking water to families there.
