Thousands of Haitians were injured and killed by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck the southwest region of the island in mid-August, 2021. An estimated 60,000 homes were destroyed. Hospitals, roads, bridges and ports were also severely damaged. Flooding, from Tropical Storm Grace, that occurred after the earthquake further exacerbated damage to structures in the area.
The Cloud Foundation is working with its trusted Haitian partners located at the epicenter of the disaster to provide medicine, medical supplies, ambulance services, emergency shelter support, and additional relief alongside local authorities and other organizations.
