We need your support to save lives

A magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck Haiti on Saturday, August 14, 2021, causing severe damage in at least two cities with probable “high casualties,” according to the U.S. Geological Survey.  

While World Vision has worked to improve the lives of children in Haiti for 30 years, our programmes aren’t near the southern quake-hit zones. However, we’re assessing needs in the affected regions and stand ready to coordinate with partner organisations to help families.

The need is enormous and we need your support to help children and families in Haiti. Help provide immediate emergency relief to those affected.
