Help Victims of the Earthquake in Haiti

The Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince, was devastated by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake, the strongest ever felt along the fault line, on January 12. The city is home to 2 million people, some of whom are the poorest in the Hemisphere. This already fragile country is reeling as thousands have lost their homes, businesses, and what few possessions they had.

Donate today to PAHEF’s Disaster Relief Fund to help bring critically needed emergency supplies for affected families and to support recovery efforts in Haiti. The Haitian relief effort needs your support to help the people of Haiti rebuild their lives and communities.
