What will my donations to the Haiti Disaster appeal towards?

Our immediate response was to fully assess the extent of the damage and to provide food, shelter and medical supplies to those needing immediate help. As well as child protection and trauma support measures. Now immediate needs have been met, our focus has shifted towards enabling our Compassion projects to reopen – initially in temporary accommodation while damaged buildings are repaired or rebuilt – as well as efforts to rebuild livelihoods for young people and adults in the area.  If in the unlikely event that more money is raised than can be spent in response to this earthquake, then funds will be used for other disaster needs in Haiti and around the world.
