When a devastating earthquake struck Haiti on January 12, 2010, 316,000 people died, more than 1 million became homeless and another 1.5 million were injured. Neighborhoods were destroyed, rubble lined the streets, families were separated and hundreds of thousands of lives were lost.
Malteser International has been active in Haiti since the earthquake in 2010. Following initial emergency relief and support with rebuilding efforts, we are now working with partners in the country to build up structural capacity of civil society organizations in the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, disaster preparedness, and food security.
Since the 2010 earthquake, Haiti has struggled with natural disasters, epidemics, and political instability that continue to disrupt the country today.
