    Haiti: Relief efforts step up following hurricane

    Malteser International’s aid efforts continue in stricken Haiti, three weeks on from Hurricane Matthew’s devastating landfall. Tools and equipment were distributed, and our staff helped clear streets and drainage channels in some of the most heavily affected areas in the immediate aftermath of the hurricane. The floodwaters have mostly receded, but conditions in the country remain appalling, and the risk of a cholera epidemic is still high. Donate to relief efforts today.

When you support Malteser International, you become part of something exceptional: a global community dedicated to making the world a better place for communities affected by poverty, disease, conflict and disasters.
