Red Cross Report Updates Haiti Earthquake Relief Efforts

Since the January 2010 earthquake, American Red Cross programs have committed $144 million on shelter programs, ensuring that nearly 109,000 people thus far have a safer place to live.

A new American Red Cross report provides an update on the extent of relief provided to Haiti's residents four years after a major earthquake on Jan. 12, 2010. Rebuilding and recovery operations continue, and to date, more than 4.3 million Haitians have benefited from ARC services.

The report is available at www.redcross.org/Haiti.

"The American Red Cross has supported the wide range of ongoing needs over the past four years with programs that include the relocation of vulnerable camp residents to safer homes, construction of hospitals and clinics, and economic programs to help people earn money and rebuild businesses," said Gail McGovern, president and CEO of the American Red Cross. "Recovery from such a devastating disaster takes time, so our programs have evolved to address changing community needs. The American Red Cross continues to utilize the generous donations wisely, efficiently, and thoughtfully to help Haitians recover and rebuild their lives."

ARC programs have spent and committed $144 million on shelter programs, provided clean water and sanitation services for more than 556,000 people, and reached 3.2 million people with cholera response and prevention activities.

Virtually all of the $486 million donated to the American Red Cross following the earthquake has been spent, committed, or allocated, the organization reported.
