After the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, you responded generously. More than $16 million has been dedicated to MCC’s earthquake response in Haiti. All but $2.5 million has been allocated so far as we support Haitians as they rebuild their lives and address root problems that made the earthquake so devastating.
Looking back on four years of MCC’s earthquake recovery work, Kurt Hildebrand, MCC Haiti representative, is pleased with the results of the Desarmes projects and many others MCC completed in and around Port-au-Prince.
“The impact has been very real and very much felt and appreciated by families and organizations we are working with,” said Hildebrand. “They have a deep appreciation for ways we helped people to recover and improve the overall quality of life in communities. It’s a positive experience, knowing that people’s real life circumstances are changing, thanks to all the giving that has happened.”
