Hurricane Matthew has destroyed parts of the Caribbean, leaving the island of Haiti severly affected.
Early estimates report that over 800 people have died with close to 350,000 individuals are now in need of urgent care. This number will unfortuantly steadily increase every day. In addition to this, almost 30,000 homes have been destroyed, leaving an estimated 60,000 people displaced and 16,000 in temporary shelters.

Please give what you can to help us to help the people of Haiti.
