JDC Aiding Hurricane Matthew Victims in Haiti

haiti_JDC_2016The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) is responding to Hurricane Matthew’s widespread destruction in Haiti focusing on medical aid and other basic needs provision for beleaguered storm victims. JDC – which deployed extensive relief and rebuilding efforts aiding hundreds of thousands in Haiti following the devastating earthquake in 2010 – is providing medical supplies and medical team assistance through its partner on the ground, Heart to Heart International.

JDC’s relief work in Haiti will focus on the hardest-hit areas in the south of the island where reports of torrential rains, flooding, and strong winds were accompanied by damage to homes, farming stock and land, and infrastructure like bridges.
