Disaster Relief

“Sak vid pa kanp. / An empty sack can't stand up.” -Haitian proverb

HAITI'S DISASTERS

International Strategic Alliances primarily focus our efforts on creating enduring solutions to Haiti’s significant problems. But there are those tragic moments when disasters suddenly and catastrophically inflict serious harm on the Haitian people, and we are compelled to respond.

 

The people of Haiti are all too acquainted with the sudden impact of natural disasters. Their fragile lives have experienced terrible events. The catastrophic 2010 earthquake was the worst natural disaster in human history. It claimed approximately 250,000 lives and displaced over a million people while destroying the center of government.

When sudden disasters strike, survivors desperately hang on for life-giving relief. Implementing an effective response is time-sensitive but extremely challenging in Haiti due to human and logistical obstacles.

ISA'S RESPONSE

ISA’s first response is to partner with local Haitian organizations that have a working knowledge of the region and the means to go directly to the sufferers—Haitians Helping Haitians. Secondly, we partner with a US disaster response organization that collects and delivers large quantities of emergency supplies.

When disasters occur, we will post timely information and appropriate responses on this website and to our Facebook page.
