This week marks the fifth anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti, which occurred on 12 January 2010. Hundreds of thousands of people lost their lives and the country was practically destroyed. Thus began one of the biggest disaster relief efforts undertaken by Convoy of Hope International.
We are deeply grateful that because of 16 European nations, we, as Convoy of Hope Europe, were able to contribute over a million dollars to this response. Within weeks, millions of meals and water purification units were distributed, especially in the area of Port-au-Prince. Over the years, the work has continued.

Today, Convoy of Hope is feeding 62,000 children every school day. For more information, check out the full article on the Convoy of Hope International website.
