Hurricane Matthew Emergency Relief

$650 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 10 people in 20 months
Tuesday, October 4th. A day that no Haitian will ever forget. This was the day that the Category 4 Hurricane Matthew swept through Haiti. The destruction wreaked on the country can hardly be fathomed. It is one of the strongest storms that hit Haiti in the last half-century. More than one thousand people died, not to mention the homes and farms that were demolished and the livestock that were killed.The south and northwest regions of Haiti were hit the hardest.

This tragedy has personally affected me and my family in many ways.  Aside from other severe damages, our house was sheltering 26 people. This number included neighbors whose houses were destroyed. Then during the second day of the storm, a tree fell on the house. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured, but then the next morning, the remainder of the house was destroyed. Because there were no other options for shelter, they had to remain there. Additionally, my aunt’s back was broken when her house fell on her during the second day of the storm. She had to stay there with her five-year-old daughter overnight until she was found stuck in beneath the house. Her daughter sustained a blow to the head.


How can you get involved in assisting with this tragedy? - Homes have been destroyed: many have been flooded or are missing roofs or walls. The most urgent needs are food and clean water, hygienic supplies, shelter, medical, with such afflictions as cholera, fevers, hunger, dehydration, and coughs. All the proceeds will go directly to my family to meet those needs.



Would you consider helping my family and neighbors by making a generous donation today? Regardless of the size, every gift will make a difference. 


 Thank you so kindly for your generosity.

Hello friends,

As many of you may have heard about the increasing rainfall that keeps my hometown and other neighbouring cities flooded. The situation is becoming riskier as the people are already in need of food, clean water, hygienic and medical supplies, on top of that they are concerned for their health and some are afraid of losing their lives in that situation that seem helpless. Cholera still continues to take lives of love ones and make others suffer greatly.

A few cases of infection have been reported among the women, with my younger sister being one of them. We need your help to continue help to provide the most needed supplies and medical care, not only to my immediate family but also those who are in close proximity to us as well.
You can make difference through your gift right where you are. Will you do that and help others to know about this as well?

Thank you very much for your care and generosity.

Hello friends,

Thank you very much for your continuous support to my family in this most difficult time. They're in immediate danger right now due to the flood in their area. Not only that, the dead animals and other contaminated debris continue to take lives and fill the local hospital.

Please, know that I will the one received the money to buy and ship hygienic supplies( toothpaste, toothbrush, soaps, and cleaning supplies) and water filters to my family in Haiti. Some of the funds will be wired to them so that they can buy food, clothes etc.. Then I will take the remaining funds with me when I visit them in December to help rebuilding our house.
Will you please continue to give and share the news with others and encourage them to give as well?
Together you can definitely make a difference.

Thank you very much for your support.

Hello friends,

As some of you have been asking how my family is doing, I really appreciate your encouragement and care for us. Their area has been flooded due to the heavy rain they've been getting since last Sunday. And they are not in a safe spot for all that. Your support mean so much to us. You can make a difference through your gift and tell others about it as well.
Thank you again.
