Help the Red Cross provide Haiti with food, water, shelter and medical supplies.
How the Red Cross is Helping
The global Red Cross network is helping hundreds of thousands of Haitians recover from the January earthquake in the largest single-country response in its history. By the one-year anniversary of the earthquake, the American Red Cross expects to have spent and signed agreements to spend $245 million to meet the most pressing needs of earthquake survivors.
Because of the generosity of our donors, Haitians are receiving immediate relief and longer-term support and training to help them recover and rebuild. And in coming years the American Red Cross will continue to responsibly invest the money entrusted to us by the American people into essential programs and projects until every donated dollar is spent.
The global Red Cross network is providing:
- Transitional homes for 150,000 people
- Cash grants and microloans to help more than 220,000 people with basic needs and to invest in small businesses
- Clean drinking water for 317,000 people each day
- Disaster preparedness programs to protect 500,000 people
- Medical treatment at health facilities for 217,000 people
- Community-based health services for 288,000 people
- Emergency shelter materials for more than 860,000 people
- Latrines for 265,000 people
- Emergency supplies for 125,000 people for use during hurricane season
The American Red Cross currently has 24 international staff and more than 320 Haitian staff and paid workers at our headquarters in Port-au-Prince.
