Help families in the Southwest of Haiti recover from the massive earthquake.
Haitian Women for Haitian Refugees has organized emergency response for the needs of survivors of the massive earthquake that struck Haiti.
Peasant villages in the Southwestern peninsula of Haiti are devastated after the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit early Saturday morning, August 14, 2021. The plain of Bakonwa (Plaine de Baconois in the Nippes region) suffered structural damage to houses, roads and irrigation systems that were being developed. These irrigation systems are a crucial attempt to instill sustainable farming in the face of climate change, and integral to the livelihood of the community.
These efforts often go underserved by large-scale agencies. HWHR has been bringing solidarity support to the people of Haiti since 2004. You can learn more about our previous flood relief efforts through After the Flood. We have been partnering with this community in Bakonwa since Hurricane Matthew devastated their the local crop and farm animals in 2016, and more recently on the development of the irrigation system. Please join us in a grassroots effort to provide support to this community.
Thank you for your support!
