How to Help Haiti Quake Victims

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is addressing shelter solutions for low-income families affected by the earthquake. The group helped 50,000 families rebuild after the earthquake. Immediately after the earthquake, they distributed shelter kits to help families make immediate repairs or build temporary shelter, typically at the site where their homes were located.

Habitat for Humanity has been operating in Haiti for 26 years. Their office was destroyed in the disaster. They have since rebuilt the office and are now fully operational again. Click here to learn more and donate to Habitat for Humanity's effort.
