When a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck Haiti in August 2021, you stepped up - you gave and gave again, so that HRI could reach victims and their families quickly and with what was needed most. Your gifts enabled HRI to provide 3,000 survival kits within days of this tragedy. And in the subsequent weeks, we distributed over 31,000 meals and 4,000 gallons of safe drinking water to families who had not yet received any assistance, people all but forgotten in the midst of so much tragedy and loss!
Your compassion, your hearts and your giving saved lives! Thank you for your confidence in HRI and our commitment to those who need us most.
Please take a few minutes to watch this video - you made all of this a reality.
2022 was the 12th year working in these countries. HRI set a new standard of service! We will continue the strategic and systematic gains made in 2022 and expand our services in ways that will impact thousands more in Haiti and Guatemala. Thank you for your commitment to HRI!

In Haiti, HRI is partnering with Vitamin Angels on several lifesaving initiatives; one of which is providing this simple deworming treatment! At no cost to us, HRI has received 200,000 deworming tablets (Albendazole 400) and Vitamin A that will reach children over the next 6 months.
HRI visited an informal internally displaced persons camp located in downtown Port-au-Prince, Haiti. When we arrived to assess the situation, we discovered the deplorable living conditions of up to 3,000 displaced persons - mostly women, children, and the elderly.
