Organizations looking to help - you can use HaitiNeeds to coordinate efforts with those who are already on the ground and working in the affected communities. You can see their location, and material needs, as well as contact them directly through the platform.
Those overseas looking to help - we know how difficult it can be to discern where to direct your support and what specifically they are in need of. The best way to support is to help those that are already working on the ground with their material needs. You can use HaitiNeeds to find organizations you want to support and either make a monetary contribution on their sites (where applicable) or reach out to them to coordinate the local donation of other goods.
Though we do recommend monetary donations in order to source the needed materials locally, if you have materials that you are looking to donate from overseas, we are also adding information on shipping companies that are providing free shipping to Haiti during these times.
Those on the ground who need help - you can publish your organization and their needs directly on the platform in order to get directed support. If you are looking for manpower and volunteers, you can search the volunteer database based on needed skills & competencies and contact them directly through the platform.
Those on the ground who are able to help - you can use HaitiNeeds to coordinate the local donation of goods or collaborate on relief efforts. If you are able to provide your skills and manpower during these times, you can also register as a volunteer or contact organizations directly to help them.
Still unsure how to proceed? We’re here to help you best attain or direct your needed support. We are setting up a call centre and helping on a case-by-case basis via email. Contact us through this form https://www.haitineeds.com/contact.
