Hurricane Matthew has struck Haiti leaving devastation in its wake. With the death toll topping 1,000 and entire communities destroyed, the United Nations estimates that 1.4 million people are in need of immediate humanitarian assistance. PWS&D will be responding through our local partners and the ACT Alliance.
Immediate assistance in the form of food, emergency non-food items, shelter, and water and sanitation services will be provided by the ACT Alliance in Haiti. Affected communities in Cuba and the Dominican Republic are also receiving assistance through the ACT Alliance.
We will update this page as soon as more information is available. In the meantime, we are welcoming donations in support of communities affected by Hurricane Matthew.
To contribute to relief efforts, you can make a donation to PWS&D through your church, by mailing a cheque to the office, donating online or calling 1-800-619-7301 x291. Please mark all donations “Hurricane Matthew.” Please give today.
Please continue praying with us for all of the people and communities directly affected by Hurricane Matthew.
Please also pray:
- For the people and communities served by Service Chrétien d’Haiti, working to strengthen resilience to climate change
- For Mirebalais and the rural communities served by Partners in Health, who provide health services and support to victims of gender-based violence
