Join the Multifaith Response to the Earthquake in Haiti


In light of the tragic earthquake that took place in Haiti Tuesday, Jan. 12th, we invite you to join in a multifaith response to help those affected by this crisis.

Here are a few ways you can help:

  • Donations to American Jewish World Service’s “Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund” will enable AJWS’s network of grantees in Haiti to meet the urgent needs of the population based on real-time, on-the-ground assessments;
  • Catholic Relief Services is also organizing its office in Haiti, and has announced an appeal for donations to deal with the chaos;
  • Church World Service is sending aid to its partner organizations on the ground;
  • Islamic Relief has launched an appeal for £1 million to respond to the disaster;
  • Oxfam America, which has launched an immediate appeal is seeking donations, as they prepare to rush teams from around the region to help provide clean water, emergency shelter, and sanitation;
  • Doctors Without Borders teams, who were already working on medical projects Haiti, have treated hundreds of people injured in the quake despite the destruction of medial centers and hospitals;
  • Direct Relief International is responding to the disaster by sending emergency medical supplies to all their local partners;
  • CARE is mobilizing donors to help send immediate supplies and aid down to the country;
  • AmeriCares is taking donations to help get emergency medical supplies down to Haiti, and has agreed to pledge upwards of $5 million in order to help with the chaos.
