Send Love to Haiti

Written by  Taiwan Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation Malaysia Kuala Lumpur & Selangor Branch

 

The death toll of the recent Hurricane Matthew that destructed Haiti has risen to 877 people. With a total population of 10 million, more than one-fifth of Haitians are affected. The country has 1.4 million people in urgent need of assistance. Following the 2010 earthquake, this is the fiercest humanitarian crisis.    
 

The worst hit area is the densely populated southwestern district, yet many remote villages suffered from infrastructure breakdown, preventing aids from going in. UN office stated that losses and casualties remained hard to estimate. Victims are trampling in mud while cleaning their homes, without clean drinking water, the living condition is awful.      
 
Hurricane Matthew ruined hospitals; at least 600 to 900 schools are damaged. Currently 100,000 children are left without education.
 
Sharing the pain after the raging hurricane, Tzu Chi volunteers set foot on the barren land. JingSi Abode in Hualien, Taiwan packed 3.9 tons of instant rice with red bean; while Tzu Chi volunteers in USA gathered 6000 pieces of blankets. In the shortest possible time, these aid supplies will reach the victims. Taichung Tzu Chi Hospital and the Philippine Branch also initiated fundraising campaign, gathering the love from all around, praying for a speedy recovery for Haiti.
 
Tzu Chi Foundation Malaysia (KL & Selangor Branch) will kick start the fundraising program “Send Love to Haiti”, to kindle the love and kindness in everyone.
 
Fundraise duration: 22/10/2016 to 30/11/2016. In addition to online donations, Tzu Chi will organize prayer sessions.
