Help families in Haiti recover from disasters
In Haiti, climate disasters, conflict and instability 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 secure livelihoods.
Right now, one in four people in Haiti are acutely hungry, and over half the population live in poverty. The rising levels of violence and 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 people living in challenging conditions to support their families and take steps out of hunger and extreme poverty.

Four ways your donation can help people in Haiti
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 lockdowns prevented her husband, Pierre, from working. Rosette’s soap saved the day - providing much-needed income to keep her whole family healthy and well-fed, and helping to prevent the spread of diseases, including coronavirus, 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.
