Hurricane Matthew hit both Haiti and the U.S. East Coast Coast in October 2016 as a Category 4 hurricane with torrential rain, massive storm surge, and winds up to 145 mph. In Haiti, the recovery continues, as Hurricane Matthew was the largest humanitarian emergency there since the earthquake of 2010.
Join with us to pray for the Caribbean, specifically World Vision’s work in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Haiti is the least developed country in the Western Hemisphere. The Dominican Republic enjoys a stronger economy, but still 40 percent of its residents live in poverty. Both countries struggle with the lingering effects of major natural disasters.
Starting in 1950 with the Korean War, World Vision has responded to the most urgent disasters and humanitarian crises around the world, providing immediate aid.
