Responding to Needs
Haiti Foundation of Hope has partners and programs in place that make it possible for us to respond when needs arise.
During the hurricane season of 2008, parts of northern Haiti were devastated by flooding and mudslides. We helped by sending medical teams, providing food and assisting with the construction of several new homes.
In January 2010, Haiti was hit by a 7.0-magnitude earthquake. More than 200,000 people were killed and even more were injured. Many of the survivors were left without homes. Within days of the quake, two of our board members were in Haiti, working at a hospital in Port-au-Prince. In the following weeks and months, we distributed food and sent medical teams to assist those in need.
