A week on from the devastating impact of Hurricane Matthew on Haiti, and the news keeps getting worse.
At least 1,200 people have died, and in some of the worst-affected areas, up to 50% of all infrastructure has been destroyed, in an already fragile and very poor country. Widespread flooding has contaminated water supplies, caused food shortages and general misery. There is a very real danger of a widespread Cholera outbreak.
We have today (12.10.2016) approved funding of €10,000 to Plan Ireland and Concern for their work in the most heavily impacted areas in the south of Haiti. The work is basic – clean water, shelter, hygiene kits, and medical attention.
Can you help?
We have committed what we can, but the needs are enormous.
We will direct all once-off donations received in the next 2 weeks to relief and recovery for the people of Haiti.
You stood by Haiti in 2010 – please, do so again, in their latest darkest hour.
You can make a once-off donation right now on this site here: https://electricaid.ie/join-electricaid-esb-payroll/
(remember to change the drop-down to “once-off”).
If you are not on the ESB payroll, or if you prefer, you can also complete and return the attached once-off form.
Thank you all,
