Please join us at World Vision in praying for the people of Haiti today.
As the people of Haiti are grappling with the devastating impact of the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck on Sunday 16th August, please join us in prayer.
Pray for the rescue of those still trapped in the rubble. Pray for families grieving the loss of their mums, dads, brothers, and sisters. Pray for communities faced with the reality of rebuilding their lives from what little is left. Pray for Haiti with us today.
On Sunday 16th of August 2021, a devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti. A country that is already struggling with poverty, civil unrest, and the deadly impacts of COVID-19. The earthquake has left the people of Haiti in despair. Homes, churches, and schools have been flattened. There are reports coming through of hospitals being overwhelmed. Thousands are feared dead.
Generous Kiwis like you supported the most vulnerable people in Haiti when the last earthquake struck, taking the lives of more than 200,000.
Since then, World Vision's global team have been working to help Haitians rebuild their lives. Right now, World Vision's expert emergency response team is on the ground assessing the damage from the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck on Sunday 16th August to determine what action is needed to help those in urgent need.
World Vision is extremely concerned for children in Afghanistan. Young and adolescent girls and boys experience conflict and instability, displacement and multidimensional poverty distinctly and disproportionately. The current situation has impacted children greatly, compounding the child protection risks associated with the ongoing drought, internal displacement, COVID-19, and food and water insecurity.
World Vision is working alongside our partners to ensure children are protected and spared the consequences of conflict and instability.
