Viola from Torbeck in southern Haiti

Viola sits outside her home in Torbeck, southern Haiti, trying to dry her bed, clothes and other belongings. She lost the roof of her home during Hurricane Matthew and has been left in a desperate situation after the storm destroyed all of the banana crops in her backyard.

Christian Aid and our local partners are distributing shelter materials, water purification tablets, food kits and cash to help people survive in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew and rebuild their lives. 

Roseline's home was destroyed by Hurricane Matthew

Roseline's home was destroyed

Hurricane Matthew destroyed Roseline’s house, leaving her family, including her five children, homeless. She’s staying at a nearby school, but values her independence and wants to return home and restart her business.

Christian Aid is providing shelter materials and cash to families like Roseline’s to help them rebuild their lives.

How we work in an emergency

We're based in countries affected by disasters so we can be there before, during and after an emergency to save lives and support people long term. Through our work with local organisations in these countries, we can talk directly to the people affected to provide the most useful emergency response.
