In Haiti, climate disasters, hunger - and now the coronavirus pandemic - have kept families in a cycle of poverty for generations. Help us reach more people with the assistance they need to stay healthy and find stable livelihoods.

Right now, one in four people in Haiti are acutely hungry, and over half the population live in poverty. The impact of regular natural disasters, including tropical storms, flooding and earthquakes, hits the poorest people the hardest.

While we continue to help people rebuild lives and homes after crises, we also work to future-proof communities from subsequent shocks. You can help us to reach families like Rosette’s with support to build sustainable livelihoods, and take steps out of hunger and extreme poverty.

Will you support our work to help people in Haiti stay healthy and prosper?

Just one week after attending a Concern-run soap-making session, Rosette (34) started her own soap business in Cité Soleil. Her family had been going hungry after coronavirus lockdowns prevented her husband, Pierre, from working. Rosette’s soap saved the day - bringing in much-needed income to keep her whole family healthy and well-fed, and helping prevent the spread of Covid-19 in her community too.

In 2020, Rosette’s was one of 1,159 extremely poor families in Haiti whose livelihoods we helped improve through business skills training, mentoring and grants to start small businesses.

I want my little business to grow up to serve the Haitian people and to give jobs in the community.

Rosette
