HURRICANE MATTHEW: DONATIONS FOR HAITI AND THE CARIBBEAN - CRS

Hurricane Matthew, a powerful category 4 storm, made landfall on Haiti early Tuesday, October 4, 2016. With as many as 900 killed and tens of thousands of homes destroyed in Haiti, the devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew is becoming more clear as officials and aid workers are starting to reach remote areas.

Outside of immediate food, the greatest needs will be shelter, water and hygiene supplies. Along with partners, Catholic Relief Services is now responding in some of the most affected areas in southern Haiti. CRS will distribute blankets, kitchen and hygiene kits and other emergency supplies as needed, as well as monitor potential outbreaks of cholera and other diseases. CRS is distributing hygiene kits, including soap, buckets and toothbrushes, as well as kitchen utensils and blankets.

CRS is also responding in other areas of the Caribbean where families and homes have been destroyed, but the greatest needs are in Haiti. CRS has made an initial commitment of $5 million to help in Haiti and other countries devastated by Matthew.

Your brothers and sisters urgently need your help. Your restricted donation will be used exclusively to aid the survivors of Hurricane Matthew. Please donate by filling out the form below.

We honor donor intent. We are committed to using your donation for victims of Hurricane Matthew, just as we did for the victims of the Haiti Earthquake after tragedy struck there. Here’s a link to our accountability page showing how we have honored that commitment of using funds donated towards that emergency response: http://www.crs.org/stories/haiti-what-you-help-make-possible. However, in the rare occurrence of an unforeseen circumstance that would prevent us from doing so, you can trust us that we will use your donation to help our brothers and sisters overseas. Here’s how our lawyers would put it:
