As Hurricane Matthew continues to batter the US, its devastation in Haiti is still being discovered. Matthew was the strongest storm to hit Haiti in almost a decade.  Hundreds have died, tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed. Roads and other infrastructure is gone. Flooding and mudslides have increased the danger of cholera and other water-borne diseases.

PWRDF has announced an initial grant of $15,000 through the ACT Alliance for relief efforts to support communities affected by Hurricane Matthew in Haiti.

Before the storm, ACT members prepared, helping to evacuate vulnerable people, preparing hygiene and shelter kits for those displaced by the storm, and distributing food to those in need.

Infographic about Hurricane MatthewACT continues to work with affected communities to discover the specific needs and to address them, and PWRDF will continue to support those efforts, providing food, medical aid, shelter, clean water and more.
