Helping Haiti Recover

The world is mobilizing to address the massive earthquake that hit Haiti on Tuesday, dealing a horrific blow to the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. The reported epicenter of the earthquake is a highly populated area known to house many of Port-au-Prince’s poorest families. The International Red Cross estimates that one-third of the island nation’s 9 million people have been displaced by the earthquake and many thousands are dead.

This disaster requires both immediate emergency relief and longer term rebuilding efforts. Microfinance will play a crucial role in the financing needs that inevitably arise from this type of catastrophe as Haitians look to rebuild their country.
