As we provide clean up kits and hygiene kits to those in need, promotion teams are simultaneously taking it directly to the streets of Cite Soleil to alert children and families about how to protect themselves and prevent cholera. Support our emergency relief on the ground.

Plastic bottles and trash are covered in sewage and crunch under our staff’s shoes, while kids run about not wearing any shoes to protect their little feet. The stench is overwhelming. We’ve been helping families and communities to remove the sewage and trash that flooded into their shack. You can help with the relief efforts. Donate today.

Malteser International Americas relief teams have been walking the sewage and garbage covered alleys of Cite Soleil to meet with families and community leaders to see how to best help the most vulnerable in the wake of the hurricane last week. Damage is extensive and much help is needed. Sewage canals burst causing toxic waste to flood the streets and shacks. Donate to Hurricane Matthew relief efforts now.

Ginette Février is a mother of 6 children and living in Truitier, Cité Soleil, and nothing about their lives is easy. Like many people in this slum, she and her children live close to the garbage filled channels in harsh conditions, often forced to search in the garbage for food or material to sell. After Hurricane Matthew the zone reeks of garbage and the smell of feces and sewage is unbearable. And, garbage trucks are now openly dumping feces into the streets. This is no way for a mother and her children to live. Help to restore dignity to Ginette, her newborn baby, and her family.
