With Haiti still reeling from the effects of Hurricanes Fay, Gustav, Hanna and Ike an estimated 600 people have died and more than 70,100 others across the country are homeless. Hurricane Hannah slowly made its way across Haiti dumping down rain on an already saturated country causing damaging floods and dangerous mudslides. Roads are impassable, major towns are submerged by mud and effluence hampering access to many towns and rural areas.
Haiti has many committed Haitian professionals, parents and people working feverishly to assist their devastated country. FAVACA stays committed to its mission of strengthening their hand to do the best job they can. We continue to build capacity during times of crisis.
