Aftermath of Hurricane Matthew
October 22, 2016
New images of destruction from Hurricane Matthew in southwest Haiti taken by our Haiti Trust team.
On Monday (17 October) we flew over southwest Haiti to survey hurricane damage to the communities surrounding Grand Bois National Park, and took these images showing flooding still affecting communities in the region, with fallen trees and others stripped of leaves. The eye of the hurricane passed through this region where we work. Photos taken along the road near Port Salut also show the impact of the storm, with overturned cars and destroyed houses. Clearly many people in this area were affected and are without housing.
We need to rebuild permanent housing for members of the Grand Bois community who were displaced by the hurricane, with help from your donations.
