Statement

On October 4, 2016, Haiti was hit by Hurricane Matthew (Category 4). Hurricane Matthew left a montage of devastation across southern Haiti, destroying houses, leaving villages under several feet of water and killing hundreds. Many of the worst-hit areas in the south were completely cut off from rescue workers by severed phone lines and collapsed bridges until Thursday. Officials fear the death toll could increase as aid workers scramble to gain access to some of the country's hardest-hit areas.

Matthew struck the southwestern peninsula with 125 mph (200 kph) winds and heavy rains that flattened homes, flooded villages, razed crops, swept away cattle and cut off the parts of the island. Rural clinics overflowed with patients whose wounds including broken bones had not been treated since the storm hit on Tuesday.

Bodies started to appear late on Thursday as waters receded in some places after Matthew's 235km per hour (kph) winds smashed concrete walls, flattened palm trees and tore roofs off homes, forcing thousands of Haitians to flee.

We extend our hands to the people of Haiti and we are asking for your support. The people of Haiti need your help more than ever. We are currently accepting donation. Monetary donations can be made on our website. In-kind donation can be mailed to us at the aforementioned address.

Please keep in mind that all monetary donations are tax deductible. It doesn’t matter how much you have to give, as long as you give it. A little goes a long way.

On behalf of the people of Haiti, Thank you.

Brought to you on behalf of Caiman Haiti Foundation.
