How the IRC put your donations to work in Haiti in 2010
Many thousands of children lost their parents in the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and thousands more lost contact with their living relatives in the chaos that followed. The IRC is continuing to reunite children and families who were separated by the disaster.

When a devastating earthquake hit Haiti in January 2010, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) arrived within days to assess the damage and provide emergency relief. Since then, we have remained on the ground to provide services and foster long-term development and recovery.
Thanks to the generous support of our donors, the IRC has worked with local partners to reach nearly 100,000 people in Haiti. We pride ourselves on the efficient use of donations, as indicated in the following chart:
