Supporting a Strong Haitian Red Cross
When disaster strikes in Haiti, it is the Haitian Red Cross and its dedicated staff and volunteers who are the first to respond. After the January 12 earthquake, Haitian Red Cross volunteers immediately began providing first aid and supporting search and rescue activities, even as many of them were themselves deeply affected by the disaster.
This dedication continues today, as the Haitian Red Cross works alongside its Red Cross sister societies from around the world to help Haiti recover.
The Canadian Red Cross is committed to supporting the Haitian Red Cross and its capacity to prepare for and respond to future disasters. Ensuring that the Haitian Red Cross is the strongest Red Cross Society it can be is vital to supporting communities in Haiti now, and years from now.
