We worked in Haiti helping children and families, providing education, health, food and helping people to earn a living. We also helped children and families when disasters struck, like the earthquakes in 2010 and 2021.

A major 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Haiti on Saturday  14 August.

We know from decades of experience that the first vital hours are critical in any humanitarian response, and that children need help as soon as possible.

Our response to the 2010 earthquake

When the devastating earthquake struck on 12 January 2010, it created one of the most all-encompassing emergencies we've ever responded to.

  • Haiti’s earthquake killed 230,000 people and left more than 1 million homeless.
  • We were one of the first agencies to respond, reaching 100,000 people within two weeks.
  • By the end of 2010, we had helped a total of 870,000 people.

Our work

Haiti was deep in poverty long before the disaster. That's why we worked there for more than 30 years, in urban and rural communities, making sure that children are protected, and providing education, health and food.
