Philanthropy's Response to the Haiti Humanitarian Crisis

Resources to Guide Philanthropic Response


Violence by groups armed with mostly American firearms has intensified in Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, resulting in the internal displacement of 362,00 people, with nearly 50,000 people displaced since the beginning of the year. Due to the level of violence and insecurity, reduced access to aid is exasperating an already compromised humanitarian space.

The ongoing hunger crisis has since heightened due to the escalated armed gang violence, inflation, and the lingering impacts of the August 2021 earthquake leaving nearly 1.4 million Haitians close to famine. This number is projected to increase to over 4 million by June 2024.
