EMERGENCY RESPONSE: HURRICANE MATHEW, HAITI
Right now, people in Haiti are suffering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Matthew, the most powerful hurricane to hit the Caribbean in nearly a decade.
ActionAid is helping people to evacuate their homes and get to safety should they need to. ActionAid Haiti is coordinating with local partners, including activating a group of 30 women trained just two months ago by ActionAid in emergency response. We will be promoting women's leadership in the emergency response to determine what kind of support is most needed. Response activities may include water, food, shelter and protection from violence.
Please donate now to support our work.
Your donation will ensure we can:
- Open 8 safe spaces for women.
- Support and resource 30 women leaders
- Respond to immediate needs such as food, clean water and shelter provision
Follow ActionAid on Twitter & Facebook for the latest updates on how we are responding on the ground in Haiti.
Our fundraising and administration costs for emergency appeals vary depending upon the type and scale of activity and final costs can only be estimated after the appeal has concluded. ActionAid Australia ensures that at least 90% of funds raised from international emergency appeals are spent directly on our emergency response programs. A portion of your donation will be used to offset fundraising and administration costs. In the event that the funds raised through this emergency appeal exceed the amount required to meet the immediate and long term needs of the people affected, ActionAid Australia will direct excess donations to our Women’s Rights in Emergencies Fund to ensure we are able to support women to take leadership roles in future disaster response and resiliency efforts.
