By Aaron Humes: The Belize Red Cross Society has opened an appeal for cash donations to be directed to emergency response operations caused by last Saturday’s 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Haiti.
The Red Cross’ counterparts in Haiti are busy assessing damages and needs in the affected areas with support from the umbrella International Federation of Red Cross/Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), with an estimated 800 thousand with needs of communication, access, security, loss of livelihoods, infrastructure, and health services.
The Haiti Red Cross Society is also supporting search and rescue, first aid, emergency health care, and shelter, which is a priority for the Red Cross and is in close communication for a coordinated response with local, provincial, and national authorities and other humanitarian organizations. Volunteers are responding to the needs of the community.
This appeal will allow the IFRC network to provide critical, life-saving support such as emergency shelter and basic household items, emergency health and care, including psychosocial support, livelihoods support, access to water, sanitation and hygiene and restoring family links.
Individuals and organizations wishing to contribute may send financial donations to the Belize Red Cross Disaster Appeal accounts at:
All donations received will be forwarded to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRC) emergency response that is being taken in support of Haiti. In addition to providing relief to persons impacted by the earthquake, the IFRC is also working to prevent further COVID-19 infections, by providing COVID-19 hygiene items to those in collective centers and those staying in private locations. The response will be further developed as the situation continues to unfold.
