Help Haiti continue to rebuild.
The Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake damaged nearly 190,000 houses in Haiti, of which 105,000 were completely destroyed. Of the more than 2 million affected survivors, an estimated 85,432 individuals are still homeless today.
Although Habitat for Humanity reached our disaster recovery program goal of helping 50,000 disaster-affected families, many more families are still desperately in need of support. We depend on the funds we raise for our rebuilding and long-term community development work and on how quickly those funds are available.
Please help Habitat in the days, months and years to come. We are committed to Haiti for the long term but need your support, so please make a tax-deductible donation today.
