Haiti Hurricane Relief

Affected people receive non-food items such as hygiene kits and blankets.

Pierre, 16, receives tarpaulins, blankets, mosquito nets and a torch from World Vision.

"Hurricane Matthew blew away my home. It has killed pigs and other animals. It also destroyed my grandfather's house. It has ravaged the gardens. It has destroyed books and my toys. I want a new home," says Enivens, 10, while sitting on the remain crumbled blocks of his family’s home.

Floods from Hurricane Matthew washed out a major roadway through one of the worst affected areas in southwest Haiti, making access difficult for disaster responders.

Maria is a single mom of three children. Her youngest child is only 18 months old. “I was trying to build a house, but it fell down with the hurricane. The salt sacks I sell are gone and I am worried about our living and my children,” says Maria.

World Vision staff are distributing blankets, water and other relief items to the affected families.

World Vision staff assess the damage from the hurricane in order to provide appropriate assistance to the affected.
