On Saturday, August 14, a massive 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti just off the shore of Saint-Louis-du-Sud. Whole neighborhoods were devastated in an instant. Over 2,000 people were killed, and thousands more are injured. The death toll will likely continue to climb.
The people of Haiti need you right now. Your gift today will help AJWS grantee partners deliver critical, emergency aid to communities affected by this earthquake, as well as support activists facing the ongoing spread of COVID-19, the political instability following the assassination of former president Jovenel Moïse, and the threat of violence from gangs empowered by Moïse and his party. They’ll also continue to address the root causes of poverty and continued human rights abuses that have plagued Haiti for years, and advance human rights as the country moves forward.
Your gift now will change people’s lives in Haiti. Please, give generously today.
If we receive donations in excess of those needed for Haiti, your 100% tax-deductible gift will be used where needed most to respond to crises and support 519 organizations working to advance justice and equality around the world.
