Haiti Disaster Response

How you can bring help in Matthew’s wake.

On Oct. 4, Hurricane Matthew pounded Haiti with heavy rain and winds up to 145 mph. Towns on Haiti’s southern peninsula experienced extensive damage. Homes, gardens, schools, and crops were destroyed, leaving people without food, clean water, shelter, or livelihoods.

On Oct. 5, MAF was already in the air, conducting damage assessment flights. Mission Aviation Fellowship has operated in Haiti since 1986 and has knowledge of the language, culture, and specific needs in this island nation. Our team is uniquely qualified to help when disaster strikes.

According to a Nov. 19 UN report, 806,000 people still desperately need food assistance, including 112,500 children at risk for acute malnutrition. Thousands of people are living in temporary shelters, even as heavy rains continue to drench the country. Some 1,600 schools are damaged, affecting 490,000 children. 6,096 cases of cholera have been reported since the hurricane.

MAF Haiti is working with some 40 organizations to delivery desperately needed supplies: food, medical supplies, and building materials. MAF is also flying medical teams and other aid workers to communities on the southern peninsula most in need of assistance.

MAF is grateful for the many generous supporters, as well as funding from the UK government, that has allowed us to help in this relief effort. Please be in prayer for the many people of Haiti who are still suffering.
