No government. Lawless gangs taking over the capital. Prisoners breaking out of jail. Bodies in the street. People fleeing their homes. No functional hospitals. Scarce food and water. This is the current situation in Port-Au-Prince, the capital of Haiti. But YOU can help, through dedicated teams of volunteers organized by Serve the City Haiti.

Here is what Serve the City Haiti will be able to do with your donations:
• Emergency Food Distribution: Purchase and distribute essential food items such as rice, beans, canned goods, and cooking oil to families facing food insecurity due to the crisis. Organize distribution in affected communities to ensure equitable access to food aid.
• Clean Water Provision: Provide access to clean drinking water by funding the distribution of water purification tablets. Ensure that safe drinking water is available to communities affected by disruptions to water supply systems.
• Hygiene Kit Distribution: Assemble and distribute hygiene kits containing items such as soap, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and menstrual hygiene products. Promote proper hygiene practices to prevent the spread of disease, especially in crowded living conditions or makeshift shelters.
• Medical Supplies and Healthcare Services: Procure and distribute medical supplies and equipment, including first aid kits, bandages, antibiotics, and basic medical instruments. Support mobile medical clinics or health outreach programs to provide essential healthcare services to underserved communities.

Serve the City Haiti has been helping Haitians serve Haitians through providing opportunities to meet personal and practical needs as volunteers for almost 15 years. Despite many challenges and crises—gang warfare, violence, kidnapping and anarchy—volunteers have continued to reach out to children on the streets, single mothers with no skills, teenagers without purpose, and people trapped in modern slavery.

Over the past weeks, the chaos in Haiti has increased exponentially. Armed gangs have been carrying out attacks in previously safe communities, leading to widespread fear and panic among the population. The government's response has been hampered by dysfunction, prompting the declaration of a state of emergency in an effort to restore order. The situation is dire, with people living in makeshift shelters because they are afraid to return home, and hospital patients left in buildings with no more doctors or medicine.

While it's true that the circumstances are grim, the Serve the City Haiti team is doing their best to stay safe and available to serve those in need, and to navigate through these challenges. But they are working with limited supplies. Would you consider donating to allow them to help more people in need? Though we have set an initial goal of 2000 euros, more would enable them also to do more.

Latest Update from Jimmy in Haiti:
"After the prison break in Haiti
Last month, the minors who were in another prison were abandoned by their supporters following the difficult situations facing the country and other prisoners were added with them, in their school space. The prison in Haiti is divided into 3 categories: adult men, women and minors. We have found minors aged 8 to 18 and over who are in prison who have committed murders and others and who are also accomplices who are members of gangs. This prison is a rehabilitation center for minors in conflict with the law. For a month they have had almost no food and no water. STC-HAITI and other organizations have tried to help especially through this last visit to this place and to raise awareness about these problems.
And STC-HAITI also took advantage during Easter to share a meal with children from families in difficulty and some who come from neighborhoods of gang violence."
